The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home

A home is a place where you have a kind, loving, and appreciative family. It does not matter if you live with just your mom , your grand parents, your sister , or even just your aunt .
A home can be a house or a barn. A home can be big or small. A home can be anything really. It is not how it looks or what colour that matters. What really matters is if you feel safe, if you are loved and if you are happy. Your home may be where you learned to walk or talk. Your home may be where you learned to ride a bike or where you first met your baby sister.
You might live in a round house or a square house. You might live in a brown house, a pink house or a yellow house. You might live on a farm in the country or an apartment in the city.
But now you know that none of that matters and what really matters is that you are safe, happy and loved. That is what a real home is.
