What is a Home?

People often wonder what the difference of a house and a home are. To me a home is not just four walls and a roof, it’s more to me. A home is where traditions are made, tears are shed and where memories are created.
That’s what a home is to me…
The living room where the Christmas tree shines large and lit. Where stories are told and gifts are shared upon the soft, brown couch smiles radiate across the cozy living room.
That’s what a home is to me…
The kitchen caked with flour where Sunday breakfast is prepared and cooked. The warm aroma of dark roast coffee at the crack of dawn. As the coffee is brewed you just know someone’s awake preparing a mouthwatering breakfast. But best of all, the greasy, decadent smell of sizzling, warm bacon.
That’s what a home is to me…
Finally the dining room where birthday presents are opened, suppers are eaten and where tough homework is completed. But best of all is when you wait patiently at the long dining room table for the mouthwatering, satisfying supper my mom and dad prepare
That’s what a home is to my family…
