What is in my Home?

What is in my Home?

There is a difference between a house and a home. A house is a structure that has furniture, decorations, and entertainment. A home, on the other hand, treasures memories and could be anything, a cave, a dam, you name it. Home is a place where feelings live, on the walls, floor, even in whole rooms where events occur. Memories faintly decorate the walls, leaving signs that life lurks around the corners, watching your every move. A home is not just a structure like a house is, it lives, breathes, because of the person who made it spring to life. Houses are just buildings standing there in the open. A home is a place where you can think, reflect, and let your true feelings out. It’s a place where you can be yourself and no one can stop you. It is a place with a family waiting with open arms, ready for you to talk about anything and everything. Homes sound and are more emotional than house and it has a bigger meaning. These homes are found all over the world, and YOU are lucky to be one of the ones to live in a home.
