Ok, this is the mantra that I tell my teenage son all the time. He should be happy, thankful, and grateful. That's our mantra. We should be happy for all of the many blessings that we have in our lives. Thankful that although we may not have some material possessions that others may have, it does not matter. Grateful we have people in our lives that love us, that we have our health, and that we are able to do things that may in some way help to make someone else feel better, or improve their lives in some way are the things that should give us so much joy. Well, today I was inundated with cakes, cupcakes, flowers, gifts, food, and so many, many wonderful wishes. Today is my birthday. Not a reason to blog, no real information today, however, I did want to make sure I told everyone, my wonderful family, my wonderful friends, and my Morningside Dental Care family, our patients and my exceptional staff (woot, woot!!!), that I am so happy, thankful and grateful to have them in my lives, and I cannot express the pure joy that I have of knowing them. Thank you for making my birthday so very, very special!!!!!!!! Tomorrow, I will have time to write a blog.
ps. I truly overdosed on sugar today. Well, here is a dental healthcare tip. First, drink copious amounts of water as soon as you are finished eating the sugary food. Make sure you brush and floss to raise the ph of your mouth to decrease the exposure of acids. Finally, it is much better to eat all of the junk food in one sitting, and then throw the rest of it out, instead of nibbling on it over a few days. If you eat it at one time, the ph of your mouth only drops one time. If you eat a little bit over time, the ph of your mouth goes up and down like a yo-yo. Every time you decrease the ph you increase the frequency of the acid buildup in your mouth and you are more prone to decay and cavities. So if you must binge, do it all at once and then get rid of the rest.
