If life has got you down, it's time to get up.

It's time to get up on the roof!

The Drifters - Up On the Roof
"Up On The Roof"

(Up on the roof)
(Up on the roof)

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face (Up on the roof)
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space (Up on the roof)

On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there, the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (Up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowds
And all that rat race noise down in the street (Up on the roof)

On the roof's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (Up on the roof)

At night, the stars put on a show for free
And, darling, you can share it all with me
I keep-a tellin' you

Right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble-proof (Up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two up on the roof (Up on the roof)

Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Oh, come on, baby (Up on the roof)
Oh, come on, honey (Up on the roof)
Everything is all right (Up on the roof)

A HUGE thanks to Bigman - that was GREAT! Really lifted me up! Here's a little poem I wrote for the poster below:

The Joy of Giving

Giving to those around us
Is as simple as can be.
If you go the extra mile and trust,
And do so joyfully.

Spend time with those around you,
Within your daily life.
Give of yourself, joyfully
By giving of your time.

Forgetting what you think you want,
And helping others is how
To give of self and spread some cheer.
The time to begin is now.

By putting your needs last, you'll see,
Within your heart doth lie
The key to being happy,
And spreading some sunshine.

This key to spreading joy,
And making others smile,
Is reaching out to do for them.
'Twill make it all worthwhile.

A look, a smile, an act of love,
Can brighten someones day.
And in doing so you'll find
All gloom doth fade away.

For when you give and die to self,
You receive oh so much more
Than ever could be gained from self,
For His grace He shall outpour.

By just remaining silent
When we wish to speak our mind,
'Tis an act of giving in itself;
A way of being kind.

For that is what He asks of us
Is to die to self and live
For those He's placed around us
If we'd just simply give.

For it is in giving that we recieve.....
