Home is the Starting Place of Love, Hope & Dreams

Home is the Starting Place of Love, Hope & Dreams

Home is a feeling that you never feel anywhere else. A home is where memories are made. I have lots of memories with my friends, family and relatives. At my home I live with my mom, dad and my brother. At home I celebrate lots of holidays with my family like Christmas, Thanksgiving and birthday parties. I love spending time with my family. Home is my favorite place to be. When I’m at home I feel happy. I can do lots of things in my home like sleep, eat, read books, write, play with my brother and a lot of other things. I am very grateful for the things I have.
A house is really different from a home to me. A house is a safe and secure place to give you shelter. Its made with wood, cement, stone, bricks and beams.
Some people don’t have the things I have. I think everyone deserves a home to live in. If I had lots of money I would donate to Habitat for Humanity to help out people without a home.
In my opinion, home is the starting place of love, hope & dreams.
