The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home is where I can go when I’m having a bad day. Or where I can lay down if I’m not feeling good. Home is a place where I can feel safe and loved by my family. It’s a place where friends and family can feel welcomed and we all can have a good laugh. When we’re all home, happiness and joy spreads around me and my family. A home is a place for moms, dads, siblings, extended family, and pets! A place where your pets are wagging their tails, looking through the window for you to come home from work or school. But at the end of the day, when all of your family comes home, you make a strong connection that doesn’t come from your friends or anyone else other than your family. That’s what makes a house a home.
