If you're looking for something to do then look up because it's National Roof Over Your Head Day!  Did you forget that was up there?  Well, let's get right into celebrating National Roof Over Your Head Day!


Well, I'd have to say that about 90% of the people reading this right now have a roof over their head. It may not be your roof, but it's a roof and it's protecting you from the elements! And people will often go through their lives complaining about this and that, and they forget about having that roof over their head. So, sometimes we need reminded that things could be a lot worse, and today helps direct our thankfulness upwards. As long as you've got a roof over your head, you're doing alright!  I mean, without the roof it's pretty much like being outside. Sure, your walls might block some wind and keep people without ladders out, but the roof is pretty handy. How many homes do you see people living in without roofs? That'd be pretty much like living in a chimney! Heck, some structures are pretty much just a roof (pavilion), so that might show how important roofs are.

They protect you from the rain, the wind, the cold, the snow, the sunlight... your roof even holds in your heat or your lovely, air-conditioned atmosphere. Think about that the next time you want to yell at a roofer because he's taking too long. People who build roofs are putting in work to protect you from the elements for DECADES! So don't rush them; let them do the best work they possibly can and offer them a drink while you're at it. It gets hot up there!  How's your roof doing?


So, how can you celebrate today?  First off, why don't you take a moment and just think about what it would be like to not have a roof over your head? None at all... ever! Things would be a lot different, wouldn't they? You'd probably be on a mad dash to invent new ways to waterproof things, huh? Life just wouldn't be as comfortable and lucky for you... you don't have to go without a roof!  So you can be thankful that you have that roof over your head, and right there you've pretty celebrated. But I think you can do better than that! I mean, you could go through the rest of your day without stressing about anything else, because you know you have a roof to protect you from the elements. It might be hard at first to let go of your gripes, but you already know how horrible it would be to go without that roof. So just for one day, don't complain about things that don't really matter.

But if you're thinking about complaining about a leak in your roof, or something along those lines, then plan to fix your roof today! I'm sure you could postpone and move around some expenses so that you can afford to repair your roof, since it's so important. And imagine how good that will make your roof feel when you slap a new set of shingles on it. Heck, you might even feel a little better when you look up and realize you have one less thing to worry about... plus your roof looks pretty good too!  Have a great day and enjoy being dry!
