At Home….

To me home is a place to be protected and cared for. Home is a place to be happy and sad. It is the place to play, run and have fun. You can smile and cry at home. It is a place to fall asleep, it is a place to wake up, it is a place to be hugged and loved in. You sit down and and read at home, you get up and dance around at home. You play with pets and you play with toys at home. You feel welcome at home. You can try and pull all nighters at home. Home is a place to practice, it is a place to study. At home you have parties, you have sleepovers and you watch movies. You play games at home you do art and make a big mess at home. You can look at the stars at home.

You can decorate your home and be funny at home. You eat yummy food at home. It is a place to open presents on Christmas morning. It is a place to dress up on Halloween night. You watch scary movies and you watch sad movies at home. Home can be in many places; yours and my home are both different yet the same in many ways. This is what home means to me.
