Life As A Conscious Mom

Lessons Learned From My Father

My Dad, me and Caidin in 2005

I want to take a minute to honor my Dad who passed away in 2008.

For 40 some years he was a dentist with a private practice and played a great role at the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo where he saw patients and mentored the dental students.

He touched so many people, right down to the nurses who cared for him the last three days while he was in the hospital.


I was thinking about the lessons I learned from my dad and I wanted to share them with you.

He taught me these things not by sitting me down and lecturing by being a living example.

He taught me that no matter how I feel inside never take it out on others. If I feel grumpy, it’s a reason to be even nicer.

He taught me to greet people when you see them, whether you know them or not.

He taught me to take interest in the lives of others.

He taught me to laugh and if things are going bad, laugh even more.

He taught me that everything can be eased by telling a really bad joke.

He taught me to love learning.

He taught me to love freely.

He taught me to love deeply.


He taught me to love what I do and do what I love.

And he taught me to live honestly and to never have anything to regret.

I know that my dad had a profound impact on not only me, but also on so many who knew him.

It was Albert Einstein who said, “Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation.”

With that I know Dad will live on for years to come.

Happy Father’s Day Dad!
