To all of my followers and HP friends I want to thank you for your support over the last couple of years and last year when I was down and out.
My health is waning and the prognosis is not good, however, the news of my mortality is only making me want to enjoy life more so now than ever before. So with the pittance that is in my HP account, I will donate it to HP so maybe they can change things around or give someone a raise that is well deserved.
I have decided to remove my hubs from here and place them in a new home. I guess you can say this is an experiment of sorts and if I do this right I'll be able to have some 'fun money' before I can't enjoy it anymore. lol I should be done here within a week. I just wanted to say 'via condios' (until we meet again) and always remember Carpe Diem (Sieze the Day).
well i do wish you well then, and hope you enjoy the rest of your days with you family. sorry to see you're leaving hubpages, as im sure you'll be missed.
I don't have family other than my dogs. The best part is that God has granted me the knowledge of how I am going to pass so it's up to me to educate people and still put smiles on others faces. With emphysema, fibrosis (scarring of the lungs) and tumors in each lung I have a lot to do. I am not scared as it is part of life and you have to embrace life! Sieze the Day! Make sure you enjoy every single moment of your day and make one person smile each day whether it be a stranger or a family member. Rejoyce in what you have instead of what you don't have. Life goes quickly as it passes us by and we really don't realize how quickly it does go.
Over the years I was exposed to not only being a smoker, but to caustic soda and cianide when I worked in a gold mine. No respiratory safety gear but it was a great job. No job is worth your health. So if you know of someone who works in a factory this year for their birthday or christmas buy them a respirator and save a life.
Sarra, I'm really sorry to hear about your health problems.I hope you find somewhere that you can earn lots of money. We all hate to see you leave.
Reading what you just commented has brought in a lot of inspiration in my heart. My prayers for you.
Best wishes to you Sarra - it's been an inspiration to see you raise yourself up over the last year.
I wish you the best of luck Sarra and have enjoyed our many chats together!
I hate to see you go
But have a good time
I wish you all the best in all your endeavors.
Take care Sarra
Good luck and God's peace be with you. You have shown what it takes to hang in there and never give up. Enjoy life in the moment.
All the best.
I hope your moved hubs will generate enough cash to give you some great days out and memories.
Good luck in what ever you do- you have been an inspiration- and will be sadly missed
Hate to see you go, Sarra. It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance. So sorry to hear about your health, I pray that you get better although you indicated that according to your prognosis, it is otherwise.
Good luck to you and God bless.
You've been an inspiration to many of us, dear one! I wish you nothing but the best as you move forward and pray for peace and joy and beauty to follow your every step. All the best to you and yours.
Thanks for sharing so much with us, and for entrusting us with so much of such import while you were here.
You are a very strong lady. Take good care of yourself.
Sorry to hear you're leaving, Michelle. As others have said, you have been an inspiration to many of us here - you will be missed.
Wishing you the best in your future endeavors, and hoping your health turns around as well. 'Till we meet again', then, Michelle.
You have family Sarra. We are your family, along with your dogs.. Best of luck in managing your illness. I will pray for you.
Sarra: I do not know you and have not gotten to know you here at HP, but my heart goes out to you. When your time comes, remember that you had value and that others saw that in you, as is evidenced by the comments here. Enjoy what you can while you can and then go with God.
Best wishes, Sarra, you will certainly be missed here at HP!
Yes, you all are my 'family' and I thank you all for that! There are things that I need to do, sorta like a bucket list. You should never leave the earth regretting not trying your hopes and ambitions at least once. Kinda like jumping out of an airplane. lol I used to do that in the Army and I'll tell you it's a rush!!! Just remember, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
You all are the best!
I am so sorry about your health issues Sarra. I wish there was something I could do to help. I hope you enjoy life to the fullest and don't let your illness get to you. You will always have a family here at HP. If you ever need a friend to lean on don't hesitate to email me.
Something to ponder: Remember, life is not full of pits, it's full of sweet cherries and we spit out the pits!
I don't think we've ever communicated, but I enjoyed reading your hubs. I'll pray for you.
I am SO sorry to hear of your health problems. I'm getting to the age that each new day is more meaningful for me than the one before. So far, I have been blessed with good health and I thank God every day for that.
We are sorry you have to leave HP. I wish you all the best.
I am very sorry to hear about your failing health. You have a great outlook, though, and you are clearly facing it with courage and dignity.
I also think it's serendipity that you have your dogs. They are faithful and loving companions, the kind who never let you down. (Like family sometimes does, unfortunately.) I wish you luck in your future endeavors and peace with your beloved dogs.
I am on Facebook if anyone wants to still follow me. Thank you for your support and prayers. It makes me so happy that I have been an inspiration to you all here. Then I did my job! When you don't think you can handle what life puts in front of you, just think of me and put one foot in front of the other and keep moving. God has a way of putting 'speed bumps' in front of us to see how we handle life's difficulties. Have the patience of Job, don't question 'why' as everything happens for a reason.
Remember to pay it forward, help your neighbors and make at least one person smile each day. Hug your children and spouse and tell them you love them and mean it. If you see someone doing something bad to another person or animal do something about it.
Never be afraid of speaking out for your convictions. Never be afraid to help someone who is in need of help. Never be afraid of getting involved. If you are afraid of these things the world will never change to become a better place. Do what is right and don't turn your back because someday you just may be the person in need.
It probably sounds like I'm preaching, but this is just common sense and common courtesy to your fellow man. We have to all ban together and help the helpless, old people, animals and children who don't have a voice of their own. It is up to us to help the helpless and point them in the right direction. Taking one hour out of a day to help someone is nothing when you compare it to a lifetime.
It is too easy to 'talk the talk' but we all need to 'walk the walk'. Make a difference in the people around you, take them a meal, take them to the food bank, donate clothes to the women's and mens shelters. Mow your neighbors lawn or drop off a bag of groceries.
Embrace your life and the lives of those who are around you as when you do you will be changing the way people act towards others.
Lots of love and Peace for everyone!!!
Sarra, HubPages doesn't allow you to post a link, but maybe you could let us know where you're going to be moving your articles to, just put a space or something so it's not a hyperlink?

I’ve decided to leave Hubpages for the foreseeable future at least. I’ve already taken down quite a few hubs but I’ll be leaving the remaining 85 on this account unless I find a good reason to move them.Why am I leaving? I believe that the Hubpages staff has become far too reactive instead of...

I have recently been in hospital and I notice since I have been back my Author Score has dropped to 78. I am sorry to have to say that I have decided to leave Hubpages because I am going to concentrate on my poetry as I don't seem to have what it takes to get the hubpages traffic that others get as...

I just wanted to say thank you all of you who have provided me support over the last year. After a full year of HubPages, I decided to migrate all of my content over to my own blog (and have completed the transition about a month ago).HubPages was a wonderful learning opportunity and a great...

When this site first started I really enjoyed writing here. It was like family and laid-back and unencumbered in many ways. Now it's all high tech and glossy and professional. I haven't written a new hub in a while because I'm wondering if Hubpages has outgrown me. Now it seems all slick and full...

What do you think about the idea of having wills set aside for each and every writer here on the hubpages platform? I've had this discussion in the past with another hubber within the community and we thought that it would be an interesting forum topic. If you were to suddenly pass on, wouldn't it...
