The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home

While you are reading this, you should not imagine a house. You should imagine a place that you love. Some people think that a home is a house but I don’t. I think a home can be a school, a church or a place that you love. A house is made with bricks and wood but a home is made with a heart. The meaning of home is where the people that you love are and not always just the place where you sleep. It’s a place where you have feelings, make memories and feel safe. It’s a place where you celebrate holidays and always feel welcome. For me, this is what the meaning of home is. I have a home and I hope that you do too.
