The Real Life Orphanage is a place in Kampala, Uganda. The orphanage volunteers are trying to help the displaced children in their area. The orphanage needs help with donations or clothing, children toys, coloring items, sport items, and other things children love to do. The orphanage needs cash donations, in order to feed the children and to give the medical care. I have included the orphanages legal paperwork, but feel free to learn more about this special place that is mentoring children.

Sadly, these special children either have lost their parents to death or their parents just cannot care for them anymore. Fortunately, these children have a wonderful set of volunteers who have stepped in to care these amazing and resilient children. This orphanage is actually small and just starting out, so any help you can provide would help these volunteers care for these children. You can create shoe boxes full of personal hygiene items and maybe other things that may help the child thrive.

Maybe, you could get your church or your co-workers involved, by donating your children’s old clothes and small toys. The children need unsung heroes and you could be that person for them, so take a moment to see how you can help these wonderful children and volunteers. You can also help spread the word, as well as find the Real Life Orphanage Home on Facebook. If you message them, someone will answer you, eventually when they get to the computer or phone that they use to communicate.

Just seeing the pictures of these kids will tug at your heart as it has done mine. Therefore, take a moment to share this blog or see how you can help make these special children’s life better. Thank you!

Eyes Like Me


My twin brother and I after learning I had cervical cancer in 2002. He would not let me cry!

My twin brother and I after learning I had cervical cancer in 2002. He would not let me cry!

Staring at an image of your face,
My brother was born in first place.
Looking at the image of me,
It is my twin brother I see.

Eyes with the same shape as mine,
My brother is the only link to a time.
Mistakes we both have made,
Built up hate and anger replaces the pain.

A bond broken many years ago,
Now, it is hard to let our love show.
Getting past the way we feel,
Is this the only way our bond can heal?

Help me try to turn the page,
Let us start acting our age.
Adults with responsibilities of our own,
I need my friend, I lost for so long!

 Frank Paxton is a runner. In fact, Frank is obsessed with running. So even though he’s late returning home from work in Atlanta to the North Georgia farm where he and his family have recently moved, and the sun is beginning to set behind the mountains, Frank is determined to go for his usual run. And Frank wants to run in the woods. Ignoring his wife’s qualms about his being alone in the rugged forestland with nighttime rapidly approaching, he heads into the woods, following the winding trails that crisscross the mountainous terrain. What Frank Paxton has no way of knowing is that he will soon be running for his life.

Mrs. Carol has done it again. What a wonderful yet exciting story that will keep you turning the pages, while wondering what is going to happen next. Without giving away any spoiler’s, Mrs. Carol’s book is full of mystery and surprises along the way. Personally, it felt as if i was on a thrill ride , yet hanging on to the edge of my seat wondering what each character’s were going to do next. I loved reading this book and so will you, especially if you like suspense and mysteries.

Snippet by Author:

Tammi Jean Cook is sixteen. She is also psychic. So when Tammi Jean hitches a ride from a long-haul trucker named Elvis P. Boone, she knows that when she reaches California she’s going to find her daddy . . . even though everyone claims he’s dead.

As they travel from the kudzu-choked fields of Alabama to the scenic hills of California, Tammi Jean and Elvis become friends as the miles click by on the Kenworth’s odometer. They also encounter people like a young woman fleeing for her life; an old Cherokee woman, who warns Tammi Jean of the risks in knowing anyone’s destiny; and a man with frightening plans for one innocent child’s future.

There’s also the Man-in-Black. Another long-haul trucker, he too is headed for California; and along the way he challenges Tammi Jean to explore the darker side of being psychic.

PS: I hope you enjoy the book as much as I have. Another Great read from Author Carol Culver Rzadkiewicz 

Ratha: The Magic Within (The Guardian Archives)


Ratha is a companion to Keltor.

Ratha: The Magic Within is a companion novelette to Keltor. This new book in the Guardian Series is due out real soon.

Author Jennifer Sage offered to allow member’s of her newsletter’s to read Ratha’s story. I could not put this story down. I waited for the new email’s and greedily read each portion like she was spoon feeding my addiction to the world’s and character’s that she has created in this magical realm. You will fall in love with this book and the book Keltor, which is the first of the Guardian Archive series.

Check it out for yourself. Keltor’s e-book is now .99 cent and her website is http://jennifersage.com.

Feel free to look around and check out her other books. Jennifer is a top best seller author in my heart and mind. She build’s worlds that will amaze you, yet allow you to build the world in your imagination as well. Oh..She is currently writing the third book in this series…Dante!

However their is more to come is this magical yet mystical series. Ratha will be out soon, but you must read Keltor first. The book is a steal at 99 cents!

Here is a Snippet for her website about Ratha: The Magic Within

The Guardian Archives Novellete

What began as a simple undertaking of a companion novel to “Keltor-The Guardian Archives” has turned into an epic adventure.

This work is a companion novel to “Keltor-The Guardian Archives” and will be considered book 1.5 in this series even though it’s nearly a full length novel.

In Keltor, we know very little about the powerful sorceress named Ratha of Westmeath. She is a 1200 year old mortal who just so happens to be one of the most powerful sorceresses to ever walk the earth and her part in Keltor is so small but her connection to the main characters is so large. We have no idea where she was 1200 years ago or what brought her to the cave in Ireland where we meet her for the first and only time in Keltor.

Who was Logan’s father? How did Ratha of Westmeath stay alive for so long in her mortal shell and why was she concealed from the Guardians? What was her path and who was the lover that she remained faithful to through all of the centuries? Who was RATHA? We find out all of this as well as where we are heading in Dante. This is an erotic tale of love that defied the worlds and universal laws in general. Don’t miss this journey packed with sizzling heat and revelations of epic proportions.

It’s one hell of a ride into the Immortal World.
