Happy Thanksgiving

Updated on July 9, 2013

I would like to give thanks today to all the people that I’ve come to know through HubPages. I've met so many wonderful people on this site since first joining a little over a year ago. This past year has flown by. I’ve made many new friends that I hope to meet face to face some day. This community is so full of supportive, helpful, caring, beautiful people to which I am so happy to be a part of. HubVille to me is like a second home that I have to visit daily to get my fix.

There are so many talented writers on this site and lately I’ve become overwhelmed trying to keep up with all the reading that I should be doing. I have to apologize for not reading everyone’s hubs of the people I follow, but there are not enough hours in the day to keep up.

Even though it’s Thanksgiving only in the U.S.A. this week, the following poem is for everyone here at HubPages.

Happy Thanksgiving From Me To You

I am thankful for all of you

All my new found friends

All the comments that you leave

All the encouragement you’ve given me

You’ve made me want to write everyday

Because of you, you’ve paved the way

To help me achieve what I’ve done

To make me what I’ve become

I’ve opened up past wounds

Through some of my poems

Inspiration came from you

From what you’ve written

It gave me courage

To let the words flow

To let the pain go

Without all of your support

These words wouldn’t have been written

HubPages is the place I begin my day

I wouldn’t have it any other way

When I sit down with coffee in hand

Checking the forums

I try to lend a hand

Then off I go to read new hubs

So many are filled with heartfelt love

For me this is Internet Paradise

You are all the spice of my life

Thank you all for everything

May everyone celebrating Thanksgiving Have a safe and happy long weekend

      Hi Susan,

      This is a beautiful tribute. I too am thankful for the beautiful, caring and supportive people like you that I have met on hub pages.

      I have been overwhelmed with trying to keep up with reading the hubs of those I follow.

      I have put that pressure on myself.

      I understand that my followers may not have time to read all my hubs so I am sure they will not take it personally if I don't read all of their hubs. After all, there is only 24 hours in a day. :-)

      Voted up, up and away!

      WHat a wonderful poem! It's nice to hear people saying positive things and how those things affect people. This is one of the few places that I've found that has this quality.

      THX for joining hubpages.

      Happy holidays and warm wishes Just Ask Susan........:)

      This is lovely Susan.

      Thanks Giving is not a Jamaican Tradition but there are those that have lived in the UK or US that celebrate it. I do love turkey though.

      A really beautiful poem Susan and I think it captures so well the gratitude and feelings of many hubbers for the friendship and support they receive on this site.

      I've been here just over a year as well now - and you're right, it has just flown in. I think an old saying is so true -'time flies when you are enjoying yourself'.

      I think one thing that your poem reflects on that touched me the most, is that Hubbers do give you the confidence to go ahead and write things that, on other sites, you just wouldn't do. And yes, that does make it an 'internet paradise'!

      A beautiful hub, a beautiful poem. Voted up + awesome.

      I just got my notification of this as a new hub. So, I'm late to the party as usual! Lol.

      Ditto Susan - I do the same things, as you know! And a special shout out to you for all the help you give to fellow hubbers:)

      Happy Thanksgiving! You deserve the best!

      Hi Susan.

      A lovely poem, but then i wouldn't expect any thing different from you.

      Your hubs are excellent and your comments to all are from the heart.

      You where the person the answered my first question on hub pages 11 months ago.

      I thank you and all, and to my American friends have a nice Thanksgiving.

      This is lovely, Susan. I too have met wonderful new friends in the nearly 6 months (Dec.7th) since I've been here-including you. I have American relatives, so I'll probably mark Thursday in some way.
