New Beginnings and Second Chances

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

“If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.”

This morning, Mr. T (Mr. Todd Mullins) watched as I unwrapped two Bath & Body Works gift cards and a $100 spa gift card.

Then, he knelt down by the couch next to me and whispered beautiful words to me about how happy I have made him, how I have always been the girl of his dreams (from the time we were 16 years old until now), and, after a few other sweet somethings in my ear, he pulled this beautiful ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him.



Of course the answer was "YES". He is so good to me - always loving, always thoughtful, attentive and kind. I've felt for an entire year that I don't deserve him...but I am revising that opinion now.

I do deserve him...and he deserves me. We have both known the pain of feeling invisible, unhappy and unfulfilled in a marriage. We have learned so much from real life experiences about how to love another person and even more about how NOT to treat one another.

Because of our past pain, we have not had a day yet where we have taken each other for granted. We both feel indescribably blessed to worship a God of second chances...and the fact that we have five beautiful children is proof of His indescribable love and perfect planning for our lives.



Merry Christmas, everyone!

~Soon-To-Be Mrs. Leah A. Mullins

    Most Excellent!!

Now I have a better understanding of your Current Status question today! emoticon

And I saw your wedding dress, oh joy!! That is one Slenderealla Fab Dress!! Where did you find it?? What Model??? I should get me one for my upcoming 20th in a couple of years. (in a smaller size than my current dress.). Hopefully in different colors as I don't look good in silver (too much yellow skin tone.).

Did you go eat at Old Venice when you were back in San Diego?? or maybe it's a step down, after eating with your two brothers who are Chefs!! (how cool is that!).

Take care!
Cheers!
Julia
