Back-to-School Blog Carnival

Friday Update: Enola has done a great job; the carnival edition is up. Please visit the linked posts and leave supportive comments, won't you? Thanks for supporting our carnival.

Our dear friend, Enola has graciously agreed to host The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse for the second time. Yay, Enola! She has decided on a back-to-school theme, as it seems I'm not the only one who struggles during this summer-into-fall transition time. Of course, you are not limited to the theme of this month's carnival. You can always submit under our regular categories of: Survivor Stories, Aftermath, Advocacy & Awareness, Healing & Therapy and Poetry. But, I like the way Enola explains this theme and also explains, in general, what a blog carnival is and what ours is about. That's outlined nicely in her announcement post here.

Submissions are due to Enola by midnight (that's in the US) Tuesday, August 18 (hey, that's the day my son goes back to school!) and we'll have the edition post on Friday, August 21. You can use this handy-dandy submission form. Join us, won't you?

hah we got these ones in on time this tiem and even stuck to the theme sort of LOL
Thanks Marj!!
Hope you are well and that you are being kind to yourself.

Could you hold off on that submission where I missed the deadline in July. I think I want to chose something else for August.

Yay, JIP! Good job!

Vicki: No problem at all. I'm glad you're submitting for August.
hi marj, i submitted something for enola's carnival. i just wanted to let you know that because i wanted to let you know what an inspiration you are to me and your blog is part of the reason i felt like i could even do that. it felt hugely scary for me to submit something. it feels more public than my blog. but i really have been wanting to do it, as i think it's so important. i don't even know if my submission will be accepted. but either way, i took a step that required bravery and that's always good right? :)

anyway i just wanted to say thank you again for being out there and doing all the work you do.

((big safe hug))
Mama: I was so touched by your comment that it took me a while to respond. :P Thank you for your kind words. And don't worry about your post getting accepted to the carnival--it is awesome! I'm glad you're reaching out to share in this way. We need more contributions like this one in the carnival. Keep 'em comin'!
oh thank you~ :D

and as for what i said about you, it's so true. your bravery and advocacy is so helpful, meaningful and inspiring. i wish you all the best~
Mountainmama: Awwww! You're so sweet. I wish you all the best as well. xoxoxo
Marj, as you can tell from all of our comments, you are a wonderful inspiration to all of us who read your blog and participate in the Blog Carnival each month. Your courage is real and gives the rest of us courage too.

Yes, you struggle. Most of us do who are survivors of abuse in any form. Thanks for sharing your journey. It makes mine easier knowing that I am not alone in this struggle.
Patricia: Thanks for saying this. I needed to hear this today.
You do such a great job. How are you doing. I know this is a hard time for you.
Thanks for thinking of me, Wanda. Yesterday was a tough T day, but I'm better today.
Great carnival!
Thanks for your support, April!
