LOL...MY 100th HUB!

This is my l00th Hub, and is Dedicated to all of You out there in Hub Land. I wish to say Thank you for giving me my Time and Space to express my points of view...This Hub's for you...LOL.

I've written Prose, I've written Poetry...even some short Stories...That flow so deeply from within my writer's mind, and you have all been so kind to read them...and make comments that have meant so much to me. I know lately I've been a little Controversial in some of the things I've said, in a "Satire" Form...And maybe because of it, or not, I've gained a few new followers, who thought I was Cool...But I Value all of You, so hopefully I didn't break any Rules. But chances are always taken when writing is involved...and in order to keep on growing, I've got to let all my Thoughts keep flowing. Thanks for allowing me to do that and not desert me, when you might disagree...you do that in Silence, by not making any comments...

We've Laughed together, we've Cried together and even given each other the Strength to carry on. We've been Intimate with our Thoughts... Worn our Hearts on our Sleeves. Bore it all, looking at Life and Love from all sides...As well as the Horrors of War...And our Animals, and their stories...Oh I could say so much more...But you all know what I'm talking about, I know you do.

Thank you my Hub Friends from all points of the Globe...From North to South, and East to West...From Continent to Continent. We all speak the same Language when it comes to Life, Love, Death, Destruction, and Peace...I've learned so much from all of you...And I am so Thrilled when you like my point of view...And it leads to a New Follower or two.

I also wish to Express My Thanks to My Very First Follower...KillRats, from Cape Town, South Africa, who came happily onto my site to welcome me to the world of Hubs...He was such a Shining Star, and a "Big One", out there in Hub Land, and yet he took the time to welcome Me...Make me feel at home...and encourage me on, with his comments. I'm ashamed to say, I, in return did not befriend him right away...In fairness everything was so new to me...It took me awhile to figure it all out...But I learned how, and I did became a Follower of this Oh So Talented Man. He died suddenly on October 24, 2010 of Heart failure. How could any Heart fail this wonderful Man? I'm sure he is smiling down on all of us now, greeting the new comers silently...And looking over my shoulder with approval, hopefully... most of the time...LOL.

Within the land of our hearts, you are an inspiration b..

Although, I feel so lost at times for fear of my self idiot, I know I'm strong and I've learned so much to feel so proud to be here - as a fan of b's for sure, a majesty for all to know her.

My heart is my guide, my everything, so I feel for your friends passing, yet I can't help but think each moment's never ever lasting, so precious few we have for sure, a dear poet like you is quite the ever lasting...

Hi Barb, Love your writing as always I have. I love the way u* honestly put out there what u* have to say. Remember there is no right or wrong in writing. What there is, is- "is" & u* do it so well. Comments of course make us feel like we're not writing silently in the dark, but if our aim was ultimately for apporoval, we wouldnt be writers. So just do what it is u* do best, & continue onward, to the next 100 mark.

lol & peace always,

Mother Lightning

B CONGRATULATIONS! I have far to go to reach this goal of 100 hubs. You are a fantastic writer and you are an uplifting person.

I feel like we have become friends.

How like you to THANK us for your 100th hub. (giggle)

How nice to share with us who your first comment came from. I am sure he is smiling from ear to ear looking down at you from where ever he is. :)

I always enjoy your hubs. I sometimes learn from them and other times am encouraged or simply entertained. A good sign of versatility, something so important to feel successful, I think, as a writer.

Again, thank you for thanking us!! Lots and lots of smiles heading your way.

Voted up and awesome!

How Beautiful your Words are to Me...thank you Pixienot, and yes I do think we are Friends, and I worry when I don't see your writings...and I usually stop by to see if it's something "New" that I have not commented on. LOL

Thank you for your concern. I have had a rough month with my FM as well my beloved dog is not well and I'm spending more time with her rather than writing. She has enriched my life so much and I hope to help her gently go to sleep. She is almost 15 and aging fast, real fast. Today she has not eaten nor drank. I did get her to take a very short and slow walk with me earlier.

Thanks so much for watching our for me, my friend!

Lots of smiles and sunshine coming your way!!

I did go to visit you today, glad to see you had a new Hub, which I read...So wonderful and informative as only you can write Pixienot. Sorry about your dog...He's so lucky to have been in the family for 15 loving years and you will be by her side, when the time comes...LOL

....well it was a good day when I met you my friend - and yes it's true - you do it all so well as a writer with your easy charm, wit, and intelligence - and to keep such esteemed company with someone like you makes the epi-man look good! And the bonus which is the poetic icing on the cake - you're my friend and you have supported me big time too! Congratulations - but then again I say that in my heart and mind for you - on 'every' hub that you do -
