The Difference between House and Home

What is the difference between a house and a home? A home is wonderful place that you feel loved and cared for . A home is something that warms your heart from the very top to the deepest part of your heart. A home is a place that you don’t need a welcome mat. You feel it on the inside and out .You feel safe and secure. You feel happy and a home is were you have memories. It doesn’t matter if you have old ones or you make new ones .

I feel comfort and comfortable that I can say and do anything (well almost ). I have not only family but friend’s in my home. My family and friend’s are not only there for me they help me accomplish anything. If you think about it each day you don’t have a doubt that your house will crumble around you, you are so fortunate. But most people don’t have that. They may have a house with a roof and walls. But they don’t have love or security. Now do you understand the difference between a house and home is. We are all so fortunate to have the Habitat For Humanity that is a hand up not a hand out !
