Fresh Moment

Fresh powder.....

A brand new fresh day........

Brings a fresh smile, 

of pure joy and happiness.

Who does not want a fresh new day? Who does not want to see a bright smile that warms up a cold day? We all know the benefits of a smile, both to the receiver and to the giver. A smile brings about a happy and better mood. As a teacher, I also find smile very effective to bring up the mood of my students in motivating them to produce more quality work. When things get very challenging in the classroom sometimes, I may forget to smile, and some of my students would ask if there is anything wrong with me. Instead of responding, "no, the class is just difficult", I then would remember that the students are missing my smile. I would right away respond with a smile, and say, "no, however things are just getting a little bit tough". Once my students hear this reply, they would right away focus back to their work and give me a smile back. Sometimes, I wish it is that easy though, there are times however that when things get very rough I forget to smile. It is not because I forgot to brush my teeth, but sometimes, when things get harder, I tend to think harder instead of remembering to smile. I remember when I was younger, my late mom would always remind me to take care of my teeth so I can always give that happy smile. She said smile is our perfect medicine, however, some hesitates to smile because they do not have good set of teeth, thus, she always remind me to take care of my teeth. I did not understand it then, I was a tad lazy when I was young, my late mom had to really remind me ten times or threaten me with tooth decay if I do not brush my teeth. Now, I do not have to be reminded to brush my teeth. Though brushing teeth is not necessarily enjoyable, but I always look forward to the taste of toothpaste, weird it may sound. If not probably for the soothing taste of Tom's Of Maine peppermint toothpaste, I would still have to muster all my energy to get my teeth clean. I take pride however in spending less time at the dentist's chair every 6 months, for the dentist would always complement me for having good set of teeth, and really clean. I guess he is happy with me since he does not have to work a lot on my teeth and the insurance still pay him the same fee for others where he spends more time cleaning.
