  1. Congratulations!! So deserving!! :D

  2. ...wow, celeste....thank you so much. i can't tell you how happy i feel to be thought of as having an "attitude of gratitude". i do have so much to be thankful for. God has blessed me in so many ways...some are obvious such as a wonderful and supportive family (including 2 pretty handsome boys), a hard working super-duper husband and a sweet little farm in the country with lots of sweet creatures to call home...but some are not so obvious, they are more matters of the heart...such as forgiveness even when i don't ask for it, love when i don't feel like i'm worth it and mercy that that i can in no way ever earn... but, He gives it all to me anyway. it is because of Him that i can be grateful. i thank you for passing on this honor to me...i cherish it. mickey johnson of nicholas landon jewelry
