What Home Means

What Home Means

Home is not just an old place, it is that place that is special where you can tell anyone anything. It is somewhere special that you will always remember throughout your life. Memories, feelings and privileges are what makes home feel like home.
Memories are made daily. Bacon and eggs on Sunday mornings are delicious and a tradition. To make them the best, you have to drown them in ketchup and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Baking cookies on some Saturday rainy afternoons. When the smell goes through your whole house.
When you enter in your door everyday, your house is cozy with candles on and your fireplace at night. During Christmas time it is never better when you have your tree up and sit and watch movies beside it and think about how blessed you really are. You also feel the love when you and your family laughs, hugs and kisses each other and snuggle in.
Also, you have privileges and in every house they are different. Friends coming over is really fun. Your parents are trusting you to not mess up. If you do, then they have to regain your trust. In my house I have TV privileges and iPad privileges as well as babysitting privileges. If I do not listen I get it taking away. They trust me to watch appropriate things and to be honest. Babysitting my brother, making sure he doesn’t get hurt, all these things involve listening and trust.
In conclusion, your family loves and cares for you. You will remember in your adult life about what your home was like and making memories, feelings and privileges. You will bring in all good stuff you have learned growing up for when you have your own house.
