The Meaning of Home

I think that a home is where you have and make memories. Bad or good memories. Memories like your first birthday party or Christmas party or going to a special place with your family or friends. Or maybe you have memories about getting your first pet or even moving into your new home! Maybe some of your memories are bad, like your parents fighting or you fighting with your family. Or you kicked your dog or cat because you had a bad day, maybe a family member died or moved away. I think a home is like a warehouse full of memories.

A home can have family and friends in it. I’m saying this because some people think that a home is where your family is and I’m not saying that’s wrong but in my opinion a home can be wherever you make it. In my opinion your home can be around people you don’t really enjoy being around or people you love to be around depending on where you make it. So in my opinion a home can be wherever you want it to be.

Those are a few of the things that I think of whenever I hear the word home.
