There’s no place like home. A quote our teacher told us. It’s from a movie but it’s true there isn’t a place like home. This quote is inspiring because we have a loving home, a happy place to live and a loving family. A house is an important place. It’s a dream come true. People can have many types of homes. You can live in a house, an apartment, condos and even on the streets. You’re lucky to have a roof over your head, you’re lucky to live in a healthy place, you’re just lucky, even if you think you’re not, you are. I’m lucky even if I live in a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 family members. I’m spoiled with the gifts I get. Those gifts don’t need to be real presents. A gift can be a mom who works until nine pm to earn enough money to pay for my family’s necessities.
I’m only 12 but I’m trying to do my best in school so when I grow up my kids will have a warm, cozy house to live in. I’ll have a good paying job and my kids will create memories of how lucky they were.
