I logged into Facebook the other morning to find my mother had written a few words for her friends after visiting our family for a day. The support feels wonderful. Truly, my mom has been an active help in making Appa’s service training a reality for us. I asked her if I could share her words.

What’s biggest on my mind today is the looming end of the Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Competition. This contest falls under the Four Paws for Noah banner and is a fundraiser for the service dog my son needs. I hope you’ll
The Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Competition is well underway. This rodeo is being hosted by Lead Buckaroo Charli Mills. Charli is a bonafide word wrangler who can tell a story as well as she can tie up a goat and she has the awards to prove it.
