Leigh Anne “That Nice Woman Sandra Bullock Played In The Blind Side” Tuohy recently posted the following picture and caption on her Facebook and Instagram accounts:


We see what we want! It’s the gospel truth! These two were literally huddled over in a corner table nose to nose and the person with me said “I bet they are up to no good” well you know me… I walked over, told them to scoot over. After 10 seconds of dead silence I said so whats happening at this table? I get nothing.. I then explained it was my store and they should spill it… They showed me their phones and they were texting friends trying to scrape up $3.00 each for the high school basketball game!

The Preview

I have not written anything for a long time. Not even in my journal. My life has changed dramatically. All for the good. I am super busy nowadays.

A little over a year ago I met a wonderful man of God. We have been married for 3 months now.  We had a small ceremony at our church with my immediate family and some friends present.  His family lives in Washington state and they weren’t present. They opted to wait for our bigger ceremony in April of next year.

My kids love him. My mom says he is a good man. He even passed my uncle’s inspection.  I passed his mother’s grilling and now she loves me. His family is great. Most importantly, God gave us his blessing. My friend says he is my Boaz.  She’s absolutely right.

It wasn’t easy trusting another man at first, in light of the infidelity in my first marriage.  Ironically, he and I have that pain in common. His ex-wife left him for another man and had been unfaithful for most of their marriage. Having this in common helps us to be gentle and patient with each other.  We are bonding quite nicely.

I will be writing more about my Boaz and what it feels like to have God flip the script on you just out of the blue.

(Spoiler alert: it feels awesome!!)
