Life Is Short So Live Love and Laugh

The father of my kids and I were together for 5 years. He was very funny and we always had a great time together. He was basically "the life of the party". I never knew what I thought would last forever would end so soon. I thought we would grow old together. We started our family very young. We welcomed our first born,  Josiah, who is currently three years old. He brought so much joy to our lives. We had our ups and downs, but it was nothing that we couldn't get through. Our bond was very strong, and we would never allow ourselves to go to bed angry. I never loved anyone as much as I loved him and our son.

On June 11, 2017, the day he passed, a part of my heart left with him.  He was shot and killed in a freak accident.

The day he died he told us twice that he loved us, and it's one of the things that has kept me sane.

My whole world changed when he left us, and all I could think about was that my kids has to grow up without a father.

He was a loving and sweet person, who had a passion for music. He would always talk about pursuing a career as a producer/rapper. I always encouraged him to follow his heart.

I am now pregnant with our daughter who will be here September 11th. It will be exactly three months after he has passed. When we found out it was a girl, he was ecstatic.

I know when our daughter is born, it will be one of the hardest days of my life, because he will not be able to stand on the side of me, as I give birth. It will also be rough in the hospital because I will remember, how he never left my side when our son was born. I know that spiritually he will still be there.

As our kids grow older, I will tell them everything I know about their father.  I will explain to my daughter that the good Lord needed him more than us, just as I explained to my son.

He pushed me through this pregnancy , especially when I was having difficult times. I know he is looking down on us smiling.

It is not easy to lose someone that has always been by your side. It is also not going to be easy being a single parent. I advise everyone to love and appreciate your love ones while they're still here on Earth. Make sure you live, laugh, and love because you will miss what you had when it is gone.

Interview With Personal Trainer Elizabeth of Best Of Liz

Me:    Please share with my readers a little about yourself.   Elizabeth: Hi, My name is Elizabeth (but only my dad still calls me by my full name), but most people know me as Liz. I'm a level 3 qualified Personal Trainer and lover of movement in all forms. Our bodies are great tools, and I love exploring what my body can do.    Me: Tell me what inspired you to start your fitness training journey?   Elizabeth: I was super active from a very young age. As soon as I could walk, I was running, and I was really fast!!! Growing up, I used to race all the boys in my neighborhood and win, but my love of movement meant I didn't want to just run, but I wanted to jump, bound, throw, try and succeed in everything. So instead of competing in just one discipline, I trained as a Hephthalite in my teenage years. At 18, I gave it up to focus on my studies, and as I began working to support myself, I ended up tending bars in London's biggest nightclubs, to eventually managing them. The more

Praying For Answers for My Daughter

  Hey,  my name is Shekita Barnes and my daughter's name is Kalaysia Barnes on November 24,2015, my daughter woke up limping, so I asked her why she was walking like that. She said she didn't know so later on that day she was crying, and my cousin and I asked her what she was crying for and again she said she didn't know. My cousin went to the store and got her and her twin brother Cordez some cupcakes, but she could not hold anything in her hands. My cousin suggested something happened to her in her sleep that night, so I took her to a hospital in Montgomery. The doctors ran tests on her and said she had a light stroke, so they sent her to Birmingham to a children’s hospital. They ran tests on her and came and told us that she could not talk but she could walk just a little. She was admitted to the hospital on December 8th. She went into a coma and the doctors had given up on her.    I left the hospital to go home and check on my other kids. She woke up on January 6,2016

Skin Color Doesn't Dictate Love

Written By: Felecia Causey Models:Casey, Tommy, Annelise, Aiyanna, and Alaina Rockwell    In a world where there should not be a boundary when it comes to love. Unfortunately in reality, we live in a place where people have a cap or visual of what and how a person should be or look like. There is also a “norm” of what a family should like.  What so many fail to do is mind the business that pays them. There are so many families that may look different, but their love for each other is as strong as any other family is. When you view from the innocent eyes of a child they don’t see color or see different, they are not aware that people despite their family, all they see in their sweet eyes, is unconditional love. There is no acceptance in their home and around most family members, or friends, but it is a factor in what love should look like in a cruel world where the color of your skin plays a factor in what love should look like. In such a time, where skin color is a very sensitive su
