Today is day three of being trapped in my house because of “Nemo”. After spending the most time at home that I have since I was a little kid, I have learned a couple of things.
1.) I love cooking. I kind of knew this before but since I don’t take time out daily to cook anymore, spending time at home reminded me of it.
2.) When I have my own home and family, my kids will only be getting fish for pets. Or maybe if they’re really lucky, a small dog with hair like a Yorkshire Terrier. Sorry I’m not sorry future family.
3.) Lighting a candle makes any room 10x better.
4.) My Mom could potentially win an award for the most dramatic phone conversations ever.
5.) Jesus loves me, yes I know, for the Bible tells me so. Haha I bet a lot of you just sang that in your head…

Syrians who have fled violent conflict at home to seek safety in Lebanon do not receive anywhere near adequate levels of humanitarian assistance and are living in extremely precarious conditions, a detailed survey released today by MSF.
The MSF report, “Misery Beyond the War Zone,” shows that of the 220,000Syrians who have sought refuge so far in Lebanon, many cannot obtain necessary health care, among other worrying findings. The survey, which follows a similarstudy carried out by MSF six months ago, reveals a marked deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Lebanon, in large part due to extremely lengthy registration delays. Refugees in Lebanon are not entitled to formal assistance if they are not registered. Lebanon is home to the largest number of Syrian refugees.
With you — in the only way that matters — I’m alive again.

Thirteen-year-old Lauren Rojas decided to send Hello Kitty 100,000 feet into space with a high-altitude balloon. Here are her recorded results.
FYI: It’s not “space”… but I’ll let this one slide as it’s a Hello Kitty in a little rocket in the stratosphere! Loves it.
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
