meaning of home

Home is a place where you can be happy, sad and maybe even angry. What home is to me is being next to your best buddy’s and spending quality time with your family. Home is a place of solitude and security. It is a place where I can just sit with my wonderful parents and watch a movie and chat about everything. Home is a place where anything can happen you should cherish every second of it. Home is a place where you can be yourself. Home is where you learn life’s most valuable lessons. It is where you listen and be heard. Home is where you grow and thrive. It shapes you into the person you are and who you will become. Home is where you can celebrate triumphs and defeats. Home is like a warm hug home is not about four walls, your tv, your bed and roof. What home really is the people that surround you. It’s my family and friends that make a house a home. I feel so sad for people who have no loved ones No one to make memories with or share holidays with. No one to give a hug or a shoulder to cry on when you feel down. No one to take care of you when you’re sick or to put a band-aid on your scrapes. No one to tell you things will be alright. No one to pick you up when you’re down.

I am so blessed to have the sense of home.
