What Does Home Mean to You?

FOR ME, MY HOME IS MY SHELTER THAT PROTECTS ME WHEN IT’S RAINING. WHEN I DON’T HAVE ANYWHERE TO GO TO,MY HOME MAKES ME FEEL SPECIAL. IT MAKES ME FEEL VERY BLESSED BECAUSE I GET TO GO HOME TO SEE MY FAMILY EVERYDAY, SLEEP IN A SOFT,COMFY BED EVERY NIGHT… MY HOME IS WHERE I GO TO AFTER A BAD DAY, AND I REMIND MYSELF THAT IT WAS JUST A BAD DAY AND DEFINITELY NOT A BAD LIFE. I’D BE NOTHING WITHOUT MY HOME, MY FAMILY, WHICH IS WHY MY HOME IS IMPORTANT TO ME. IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE DON’T HAVE HOUSES, THEY DON’T GET TO CELEBRATE ON THEIR BIRTHDAYS OR HAVE A GOOD TIME WITH THEIR FAMILIES, BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY. SO THAT’S WHY I’M GRATEFUL THAT I HAVE MY HOME.
I LOVE MY HOUSE, MY HOME, MY SHELTER…
