THE MEANING OF A HOME

THE MEANING OF A HOME

“Home is where I can look ugly and enjoy it”.
In my home I feel safe, secure, accepted as who I am. My family loves me for who I am and not anybody else.
To me the difference between a house and home is that a house is just a building but a home isn’t just a building its a feeling. In a home you share love and memories, good or bad with the ones you feel comfortable enough to share them with… your family.
Four months ago when I was on summer break my mom left to go to Nigeria for two months for her sister’s wedding. During that time, we called her a lot on FaceTime but just wasn’t the same without her. This makes me feel sad for the people without a home you can’t share a home with the ones you love. If you don’t even have one, I think everyone deserves a home, a caring family, food and a cozy bed to sleep on at night.
My home is really important to me, it’s a wonderful place my life wouldn’t be the same without one. To me the meaning of home is not the things that are there but the people you share it with that truly makes a home. This is what my home means to me. I realize some people can’t afford a home but I hope I can help provide some money through my essay.
