What does home mean

What does Home mean?

“ A house is built of wood and stone but only love can make it a home”

How do you know you’re home? I think that when you feel happiness, joy and love you know you’re home. An abundance of people have homes but many people don’t. I have a home, I know what it feels like, but some people don’t have homes and don’t know what it feels like. I don’t ever want to know what it feels like to not have a home. When I am sad I think about what it would be like not to have a home, not to have any money to buy necessities and not to be loved by my family. But I know I will be loved until I die. Home is an important place because have you ever thought to yourself that you can’t wait to go home? Well there’s a reason for thinking that. It’s because home is where you can be you, you don’t have to pretend to be someone else. Home is supposed to be like laying on a fluffy cloud because home is where you feel safe. You don’t think you’re lucky? Well you are because not everyone has a home or a family or their own fluffy cloud.
