The Meaning of Home

Home is a Comfortable Place

Home is a comfortable place. It is kind of like a good book. It pulls you in and makes you feel like the main character. It’s an adventure that takes you to amazing places in safe hands. I don’t know what makes a home special, it just is.
My family is pretty big. I have 3 sisters and my Mom and Dad. I have 3 pets as well; it’s a busy place. Me and my family sometimes have dinner together and it usually takes a long time and is boring; But sometimes it can be pretty funny! At some holidays our family comes over to eat with us and we have a good time. On Christmas we give and get presents from our family. On Halloween we go trick or treating with my Dad. When it is my birthday, we usually go over to my grandma’s house (my grandma on my dad’s side of the family) and eat and do stuff and sing happy birthday. So in general we have quite a good time at our home and are cousin’s homes. We are very close. I feel safe, loved and happy the entire day. That’s the feeling of home; warmth for the heart.
Home is a comfortable place. I’m always glad to come home after school. Home is family, my dog and even my video games. If everyone had a home like mine the world would be a great place
