Please help us with this campaign for MATCHING FUNDS. Our last campaign for dog food did not reach goal, and we had some setbacks with the pallet . . . it took 11 days to get here and several bags had fallen off during transit with most of the dog food emptied. So we had to cut into our reserve which nullified the savings we were expecting. Just another adventure, and we are still grateful for this program and to all the people who support us.
The next pallet is scheduled to ship mid-May so we will probably and hopefully receive it no later than the last week in May. From experience it takes about 3 weeks for a #youcaring campaign to meet a set goal.

There’s a reason that I refer to my life on my little farm as a “one woman circus.” Nothing is simple and everything is an adventure, sometimes one I would have gladly skipped. For as long as I can remember, even as a child, I would embark on some project that should have been simple to complete, but because of a “what if” mentality, something I’m sure I inherited from my mother, turns into an almost newsworthy event.
Most of my memories of Lucia are written in my special, private journal . . . a place where Lucia and I have our conversations. It has been a big step in helping me heal my heart to some extent, at least enough to be able to function. If we’re wise enough to live in the moment with our pets, we have so many significant days. Cherish every minute they are willing to give you . . . they are gone from this plane of existence much too soon.
