the meaning of home

A house is simply a structure, but a home is made of love, care and respect for who you are. Home is where you feel safe, like nothing can hurt you because someone is always there to shield you from all the ups and downs of the outside world. Home is a place to be yourself and never feel left out or pushed away because you know that it is your home. Homes give shelter, warmth and comfort that will always be with you when you need it the most. You will never be alone at home because you will have family right by your side. A house can only take so many people but a home will take as much as your heart will love, because without love you can’t have a home that you can rely on.
I feel so lucky that I have a home that’s full of love and care that makes it joyful and a happy place to be.
