September 11th Make Your Bed Day

Do you normally make you bed everyday? It is the right thing to do but so often you either just don’t have the time or the will to get ‘er done! I have to admit, I am one of the above. My wife has created a beautiful bed when its made up, quilt, blanket, sheets, runners and about 400 pillows neatly arranged in layers from the largest to the smallest. It is quite attractive. It also takes me nearly an hour to make up. (I should note here it takes her about 5 minutes) Anyway, whether you normally make up your bed or don’t, today you should. You’ll feel better if you do.

How to celebrate – Make your bed. Sleep on the floor. Just stay awake!

December 3rd National Roof Over Your Head Day

Most of us are lucky enough to have a roof over our heads. Some are not that lucky. Imagine, if you will, having to suffer through it raining, or snowing, or constantly getting beaten down by the sun. When the wind blows there is no place to go to get out of it and nothing to keep random animals from invading your privacy. Really, without a roof over your head there is little you can say is yours. It’s out in the open where anyone can take what you own and make it theirs. Even when there are no walls the roof tends to make people realize that what is underneath it belongs to someone. So be thankful there is a roof over your head, even if it leaks. It’s better than not having one at all!

How to celebrate – Check your roof and make sure it does not need repair. Help provide a roof for someone else. Be thankful you have a roof, which makes your home, a home.
