House vs Home

House vs Home

“It takes hands to build house but only hearts can build a home”
I like this quote is because you need strong material to build a house and even stronger material to build a home which is in your heart.
Some of the reasons why I like my home is because my family and dog share it with me. My dogs name is Joker, and I like the stuff in my home like my bed, my stuffies, my room and much more.
When we got Joker we had to drive all the way to Brandon but as we were driving there was a SNOWSTORM, and the roads closed after we got in to Brandon. So we had to sleep overnight in a hotel. It made me miss my home.
Everyone deserves to have a home as beautiful mine but some people don’t. I’m very lucky to have a home. Some people aren’t and that is what Habitat for Humanity is for. They help people that don’t have homes by raising money.
