A Fathers Day Tribute

By the age of 27 you had four children and had already owned and improved two homes on your own without any financial help from your parents.
 On this Father's Day I want to acknowledge and  thank you  for all the years you devoted to being a strong, reliable man and father, protective and proud, sacrificing and selfless for the sake of your family.  You have been brave and caring, determined and dependable.  Thank you for your years of coaching, loving, sheltering, advising, understanding, forgiving and guiding.  I thank you with all my heart.
Thank you for not throwing in the towel of abandonment when appreciation ran low and your shoulders grew heavy with responsibility.

You have been courageous and selfless ,leaving behind all you knew to move to a better place after you researched many areas for good schools and excellent growth and employment opportunities for your family.
You have been patient and knowledgeable when called upon, never failing in consideration ,and forever dependable, intelligent and inspiring, and someone who I am proud to call my husband, friend, and faithful loving father of our four children as well as grandfather to our seven grandchildren.

  Thank you for the camping trips, the boy scout meetings and pine box derby help.  Thank you for little league coaching, for your instruction in the game and for making it all such a fun time together as a family.  Thank you for girls ballet classes and softball, for ice hockey equipment and team dues and for driving and being our kids number ONE fan!

I know I couldn't possibly have touched on everything you have done, but this is a small portion of love and thanks for a BIG man.
You have always been available to support, encourage and uplift your children. You have been there to fix a broken toy, a broken car and a broken heart. You were always there to lend a caring, listening ear and a helpful hand at every age and every stage of your children's lives.
We have albums, drawers, computers and minds filled with snapshots of cherished memories of family celebrations, births and baptisms, graduations, engagements, family trips and family time.
Thank you for the time, joy, laughter,and the generosity and love you have always shared!

You taught your children the value of a dollar and how to save instead of spending impulsively. You taught them the value and pride of home ownership in every home we ever owned by always improving and taking care of what we owned. You taught your children the importance of an education by giving them all the opportunity to excel even though you never went to college yourself. You taught them by example, how to be business people and how to invest by your profitable investments and hard work. You taught them to respect authority and others. You showed them the importance of family by always generously opening your door, heart, and wallet to love and care for them.

Thank you for never abandoning or giving up on your children and family especially when tough times rolled around and it was you who felt abandoned.
You are deeply loved and appreciated beyond measure by the person who started this journey with You! This tribute is to you with all my love!

Happy Fathers Day to the one and only Pasquale J. Scibelli ❤

I Am Adopted and a date with predestination

The holiday season is upon us, and while it may strike chords of happiness and family togetherness, for many it is a lonely time and brings on severe depression.
What of those who have no family to enjoy?  For some, even the invitation from a neighbor or someone else's family, makes them feel like an orphan in the worst sense; rejected, unwanted, and unloved by their "natural " family if they have one, and a charity case at best.
Growing up as blessed as I was, holidays were always at home with my parents, four sisters and four brothers.  Once married, with four children of our own, it was wonderful to carry on that tradition, and to relieve our parents of the work of feeding and entertaining.
This morning I turned to my book* of daily readings *. 
It highlighted 10 key biblical promises that the reader was instructed to "Memorize, Remember, and Treasure".
Number 1 was; "I Am Adopted" with the reference to Ephesians 1:5, and this is the one I  would …

All Natural Homemade Goodies

I had said in a previous blog that I would share more ways you can use some of the ingredients I used for the sunspot face serum, so here goes!   I found a recipe online for these lotion bars which are lotion, NOT soap! They are just the right amount of creamy for me, but you can adjust the recipe to make it creamier or harder.  The idea is, when you rub them against your warm skin they melt just enough to condition and protect your skin.  
I got my recipe out and all the things I would need in advance so I wouldn't be running around trying to find things at the last minute. For this recipe I used 100% filtered beeswax, shea butter, organic coconut oil, and lavendar essential oil for fragrance, although you dont have to add fragrance but if you decide you want to you can choose any essential oil you prefer or just pure vanilla extract which I may try next time. I bought two solid blocks of beeswax here: 

What I would do different next time is buy beeswax pastilles by the pound li…

Beeswax candles update

In an earlier post I shared my beeswax candlemaking experience. I went by a receipe that called for 1.5 pounds of beeswax to 1 cup of coconut oil. Sounded good, wouldn't melt as hot as pure beeswax and was for beginners. I didn't realize at the time that there were different wicks for different waxes and different size candles! I had already ordered some #2 all cotton wicks so I was going to wing it!

I put this off as long as possible, I guess out of fear! I was having too much fun with my soaps anyway. Well, two out of 4 candles cracked in the wax. I'm still not sure why? I tried looking up what I could do to salvage the two with the crack in the wax. Didn't find much help. I stumbled across another website that makes beautiful pure beeswax candles: 
 A little bit about them here; In June of 1999 we were transplanted from Holy Nativity Convent in Boston, one of the country's largest producers of 100% pure beeswax tapers.…
