The Meaning of Home

What is the meaning of home? Lots of people have different opinions. Home can be where love comes from, or where memories are made. Home is where you’ll feel safe and sound and that is a great feeling. If you move out you’ll get sick feeling in your stomach begging you to stay. Wherever you go, whatever you do, your home will be there keeping you safe. Though your home can also be a tough place, where you can’t pay taxes and bills, where you feel can’t forgive, or when you don’t feel sane. But when that’s over, your home will be the place where you’ll pay debts, forgive and forget and where you’ll feel happy. But not everyone gets that feeling of being loved, of feeling loved, of feeling safe.Even though that might be hard to believe, it’s true. But you can change that. You can donate to Habitat for humanity and help families all around Canada, to build their homes, so they can finally feel the meaning of home.
