I just took the time to read a hub by a new hubber, Let the Walls Fall Down. Please, if you can take the time to read this. It is very poignant and very well told. It is long, but do try to read through it all. I am so thrilled to have met this woman with her story. It may make you weep, so grab a box of Kleenex before you go. Now, I must leave and contemplate this world we live in. It is about adversity. I am pushing seventy. That is enough exercise for me. I must rest.
That is the title of the hub and her name is Sybil Marie. I am leaving now dear. thanks
I'm off to read also, but I thought we had a typing date tonight.
Holy cow what a powerful story. It is very long. Part way in I was actually wondering if it could be a fictional piece. Although I wouldn’t say I was sobbing, to say I was moved to tears may be a slight understatement. By that point I had no more thoughts of fiction. What a sadly beautiful story.
Hat’s off to writers who have such powerful stories, and who are brave and willing to share with us. In this vein, I would also recommend Paradise7 and lyricsingray.
I think this is the link. I went to the story and read it, and left a comment there. What a powerful piece of writing! Thanks for the tip, Ralwus. It was well worth it.
I appreciate you all believing in me and I'm also sure this woman will be most surprised and happy. Now, I don't want no more tear jerkers for a bit. At least a year of bits. My heart is all in knots now over the things my old eyes have seen this day. When it comes to tears it's like lettin' the cat outta the bag. Easier lettin 'em out than it is puttin' back in. Now, have a good weekend if I don't see you all later on.
Now I'm going to go have that drink I promised myself.

I just signed up for the Amazon affiliate. Do I have to do something special to put that on my...hubs, or will placing the Amazon capsule on my hubs be enough? If I need to do something besides just using an Amazon capsule please let me know how to do this.Thanks!

Are you happy when you see that somebody has read one of your slower hubs?I'm always presently surprised when one of my slower hubs gets a little traffic, even just one view, lol. I'm like, "Wow, somebody's actually reading that?" It's especially a hoot when it's organic traffic. Do you...
