Love and Nails

A house is a house, like any house is. A house has furniture, electronics and popcorn too. It has movies, hockey nets and games. But a house will never, and I mean NEVER be like a home. A home is more magnificent, more joyful, it has more love! Home is a place where you can be yourself. Not like your friend. Oh, now – like yourself! Home has people you love, For example, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and even pets like dogs, cats, rabbits, and fish. They are all part of your home. Not other homes, your home. You build a house with wood and nails, but a real nice cozy home is built with love, joy, people and pets. Do all people have a home made with love AND nails? The answer is no. That is why we have this contest, to help build houses for those who don’t have one. So that is why I put effort in this assignment. So I can win and help build a house.
