In just about every other country in the world, locking a cell phone is illegal. Only in the US would unlocking a phone be illegal! Once my contract is up, IT'S MY PHONE!
Happiness is having your 3 year old bring you his own Bible at bedtime & asking you to read him 2 stories. And he's always the one to start the blessing at meal times. What a sweet boy!
