Deborah Brooks Now Has 500 Followers.

Updated on September 27, 2012

I Thank You All


On Thursday, August 2, 2012 2:59 PM, I got this e-mail

You have hit a pretty impressive milestone—you now have 500 Followers!

Fun fact: Five Hundred is the national card game in Australia. It is usually played by 4 people, so you could have 125 games going on simultaneously if you’re Followers played amongst themselves!

Hub Awards


I got one of these awards!!

I dont know which one.. But they do look good!!

All I can say is I could not have done this without all of you.

When I started writing on the hub I was one scared kitten. I did not think that I could write and I could not believe that anyone would want to read what I wanted and liked to write. As you all know I love my poetry. I do like to write my recipes that I love to cook. And Mostly my family and my mom God rest her soul..

Thank you all!

Congratulations to this year’s Hubbie champions!

I want to thank each one of you somehow someway. If I do not get all of your names I will make sure I will write about you in my hubs. I have to say that Billy Buc has taught me that. He is simply amazing how he always gives a shout out to other hubbers. Bless you Billy for your kindness and inspiration.

Most Beautiful Hub: Adoption: A Letter to My Birth Mother Who I Never Knew Most Supportive Hubber

Then there is Lord de Cross wow what an inspiration this man is and he knows his algebra and calculus and anything to do with math that gives me a headache.. lol but that is alright because I am learning Lord. Yes I really believe God is guiding Lord de Cross’s hand in his writing. Best Community Activist

Then there is Epigramman all the way from Canada. His poetry will make you look, laugh and blush at the same time. He has been one of my biggest supporters from day one. Bless you my friend. He calls me Deborah of the Divine. As a matter of fact Colin has won the best poet award. Congratulations to you!! Best Hub Pages Poet

Mr Frank what can I say? This writer writes poems that are always about the police and murder and trying to solve crimes and I have said from day one I feel like I am watching CSI.. Plus He always calls me Our Ms. Brooks.. He is another follower from day one he has supported me.

Rahul, my adopted son, you are so awesome and you make a mom proud. Going to college and working long hours and writing the most beautiful poetry I have ever seen.. My dear, as a mom I say get More Sleep!!

This following hubber saw I needed one more follower to have 500 and he added his name. What a great guy!

I want to thank the follower


Rich Rumple

Over the river and through the woods into the land of Oz. Add a hint of Tabasco Sauce, some onions, denominational religious conflict, political despair, highlighted with a touch of sarcastic humor and you've got the beginnings of where my mind could be on drugs. Eliminate the drugs, and who knows what's in store.

Blessings and Hugs to you all!!

By Debbie Brooks

When starting putting this hub together. I asked Lord De Cross how I should do it.. I wanted this to be special. and it grew and grew and then I started freaking out, what if it is not good enough? I realize all of you are so special and wonderful writers. I really don't think I can compare to any of you but I do know you make me feel special and loved.

Thank you and God Bless you all!

If I Ieft you out I think I have ran out of room.. Just know I love your all!!
