When I think of home I always feel safe. Home is my spot, my one little place. When I talk about home I always feel warm. I picture myself walking in through the door. When I am at home my traditions come true. When I am at home the laughter shines through. When I am at home I have proper food and water. I also have a loving mother, brother and father.

When I am away from home I always want to go back. The morals of our house can some times be harsh, but we always like to have a laugh. I have all the things I need at home. Our house might be messy but we are always happy. When I look at my home I see a beautiful place. I love to run and play in this space. When I see people without a home I wonder how hard it is for them to find shelter.

I am very lucky to have a home like the one I have here in Newfoundland.
