The meaning of home

A house is made of walls and beams, but a home is made of love and dreams

To me a house is simply a shelter, to keep you protected from the outside world. But the only purposes it really serves is it keeps you warm and safe.
But a home is a place that comforts you, makes you feel warm on the inside and outside as it fills you with old and new memories. It makes you happy, and something it doesn’t have to be a house to feel like home. It’s like a house, but more. It comforts you and makes you smile, even in the toughest of times.
A home be a tent, an apartment, a shack or a mansion, anything that you have, as long as it feels like home.

You may live in a house for so long that it turns into home for you, and once you have a home, you know you’ll never forget it.
Home isn’t just a place, it’s a feeling. You’ll know when you feel at home, its one of those feelings you only feel in special places.

You may never feel like you have a home until you are full grown, but once you have you’ll cherish it forever and you won’t let go, because it feels so special.
I have a home, and I love it, I live there with my amazing mom and little brother.
I hope everyone will get to have a home at some point in their life, a safe and comforting place that makes them joyful even in the toughest of times. It is like a shoulder to lean on while you’re going through all the ups and downs of life.
