My Home

Home to Me
“It takes hands to build a house but only hearts can build a home.” Have you ever heard this special quote before? I have heard this before and boy I do I believe it. When I think of home I think of Sweety, my dog running around and I think of my family. I think of my Mom laughing which makes me smile.
Home is where I feel safe and I feel loved. When I feel sad, I am comfortable enough to cry at my home. Home is a special place. In my home I have a brother, my Mom, and my Dad. I am a twin. So my brother and I are pretty close. We always have dinner together and that is a special time. It makes me feel happy.
A house is just walls, windows, doors and a roof. Many houses look the same. What makes them a home? I don’t know for sure but I think a house becomes a home when a family moves in and makes memories together.
“It takes hands to build a house but only hearts can build a home.” I home is safety, love and making memories.
