The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home

When I hear the word home, I think of many things. A home is a place where you live and where you feel happy. When you live in a home it can comfort you. A home makes you feel safe and is important to you. You have furniture that is decorating your house which makes you feel like you’re in a safe place. Home is a word to describe a place where you live.

A home is not the same for everybody. Some people live on the streets and they call the street their home because that’s where they live. When you think of home it might not be the same as as your friend’s thought because home might be different for everyone. A home can be a country or anything that describes a home to you. A home doesn’t have to be in a specific place; it can be anywhere you want it to be.

Everybody should think that their home is a special place. They should like their home and be thankful that they have a house if they do. I think this because some people don’t have a house to protect them or make them feel safe when there is danger. Some people live on the streets because they can’t afford a house or don’t have one to live in. Everybody is very lucky that you have a place called home.

Every home is unique in its own way. Some houses are built where there are lakes or ponds right in their backyard! But it’s not just lakes or ponds it can be anything else like a train station. Things like this can make your house/home very unique. Things like the style of the house/home can also make it unique too. Try thinking about something that makes your house unique.

A home will be there for you when you need it. A home will be there to protect you and make you feel safe. A home will be there to comfort you if you need to be comforted. Your home will always be there for you. This is what HOME means to me.
