The attention of the handsome new guy shocks her into a revelation: She's ready to live again, and maybe the best is yet to come. The thing is, everybody in Blessings is sure that it's Mike and LilyAnn who belong together, and they're willing to do whatever it takes to make LilyAnn realize that the love of her life has been by her side all along.
