The Meaning of Home

We take houses for granted they should be treasured and kept in shape. I have a house you probably have one too but to make it a house a home you need family. In this story I will be telling you the difference between a house and a home.

First, I will be telling you the stuff you need to have a house. In a house there are walls, tables, chairs, beds, food, clothes, toilets, couches, TV, doors, sinks, dressers, fridges and sometimes even video games.

But in a home there is love, dreams, family, hope, security, happiness, friends, memories, forgiveness, traditions, safety, life, caring, fighting, laughter, trust, warmth, fun, respect and even joy.

If I was you I wouldn’t take my house for granted because you probably don’t know how many people don’t have a house. Next time think twice before you buy something because it could have made a big difference for someone to have a house to make into a home.
