What Home Means to Me

What Home Means to Me

Home to me is family and family is feeling accepted. When I’m at home I am with the people I love. I eat with them, I play with them, I laugh when they say something funny, I cry when one of them gets hurt. I even consider some of my friends family because they accept me, flaws and all. My immediate family consists of my brother, my mom and dad, my little puppy, Luna, and myself. I love them all so much and they love me too. When I’m feeling down, my whole family (even Luna), come and comfort me, and they make me feel better. I love them so much!

I love when my mom says, “Do you know how much I love you? I love you this much, and maybe even more.” She always says that while holding her arms out really wide. When I think of all those families without homes, I feel so sad because I have a wonderful home and so do my friends, but others don’t. So when other people don’t have a place to stay, home and family are so important to them, no matter how big or small their family is. Everyone loves their family, especially God, because God loves us all. Everyone is family and everyone needs love and a place to call home. 
