Survivors Can Thrive Hosts Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse: Four-Year Anniversary Edition

Marj aka Thriver is hosting the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse:  Four-Year Anniversary Edition on her blog Survivors Can Thrive! this month.  She posted it on June 19 at the following link:

Congratulations on the four-year anniversary Marj.  You always do such a great job of hosting and running the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse each month.  Thank you.  I appreciate the work that you do to keep this running.  I know it means a great deal to all of the survivors who read it and those who participate.  I don't know if I will ever get the technical skills to host one myself but I can support you and the Blog Carnival by posting articles to announce it each month to my readers.

Here is the Trigger Warning that Marj posted at the beginning of the post.
"Trigger Warning:  Understandably, the subject of child abuse can be disturbing.  Please exercise appropriate self-care when reading the following posts.  We all want to advocate and raise awareness, but remember to keep yourself safe!"  

If I counted correctly, there are 27 posts included in this month's Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse.  I hope that you will join me in going to the above link and taking the time to read each of the posts.  Feel free to leave a comment and let each person know what you think and feel about their posts about child abuse. 

This month, because of all of the grieving that I have been going through with my Inner Child Letters Series, I have been going back and reading some of the posts that I wrote on grieving in the three years that I have been blogging.  The post that I submitted to the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is called "Acknowledging Your Grief And Releasing It."  You will find it listed with all of the others at the following link to Survivors Can Thrive! :

I have been blogging for three years as of June 1, 2010.  It seems like such a long time when really it isn't.  I thank you, my readers, for coming along and sharing my journey with me.  Now go read this month's Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse:  Four-Year Anniversary Edition.  Welcome to the new bloggers who are posting for the first time.  I look forward to getting to know you through your writing.
Patricia

Patricia,
I was thinking about you today and thought I would stop by and tell you what a wonderful difference you make for myself as well as for so many others!
Keep blogging my friend! You rock and I appreciate you, your wisdom and support and your willingness to write and speak about such a difficult issue...so much.
Love Darlene

Darlene, thank you so much for your encouragement. I could use it today. We had storms with thunder and lightning last night so I didn't get back online last night. I always turn everything off and unplug it with lightning. My next door neighbor has had two trees hit by lightning since we moved here 10 years ago. I also have had a friend who had her computer fried when lightning hit their air conditioning unit a few years ago so I am always caution when we get thunderstorms.

Patricia, you have been a blessing and an encouragement since we first met, and I'm so thankful for you, your courage and your words! Love and bright blessings, always and in all ways...

Thanks Patricia! I have been "away" for awhile but am back and will continue to read your posts! Hugs and blessings!

Colleen, you are very welcome. Congratulations on the new grandson. I was present for the birth of two of our four grandchildren. Would have been present for a third one but he was in a hurry and was born two weeks early. One of our granddaughters even waited until we got to the hospital to be born. Our daughter was in labor and we were still about two hours away when her labor pains just stopped. They started back ten minutes after we got to the hospital to be with her and our second granddaughter was born. It was a wonderful experience to be in the room with our daughter and son-in-law for those two births. Both our children were born during the 1970's when the hospitals were allowing the husband to be in the delivery room to see his children being born. Those were some of the most beautiful experiences for my husband and I to share.

Katie, thank you for the safe hugs. I am okay. Processing some new stuff that I am getting ready to write about. I intended to write about a new process that I started last week but the weekend just got too busy. Thought I would have some quiet time yesterday or Sunday to write but it just didn't happen. Thank you for caring. I appreciate it.
