The Meaning Of Home

I am so very grateful to have such a wonderful home! As a matter of fact I have two!

To me a home is a place where I know I am safe, There are people who love me, where I am comfortable, and a place where I am happy and healthy. When you walk in the door you feel warmth and comfort, as if your are being wrapped in a blanket with a cup of hot cocoa in your hands. In your home you share many emotions with each other, you may laugh, play, cry, and hurt but whatever emotion you are feeling there will always be someone to lend a shoulder.

Unfortunately some people do not have a home where they know they are safe, where they share emotions and where they feel warmth and comfort. They do not have anyone to lend a shoulder to them and this is a very sad reality. If everybody I know and everybody they know give even just a dollar to every cold, lonely and sad person that they see on the street this will make a big, big difference. Make that Difference and give everybody that happy home that they are wishing for. Let them be wrapped in a blanket and give them that cup of hot cocoa.
