Why I Love My Home

There are a lot of people in Canada that have a place to call home. But there are many people called the homeless who have to fight for their lives every day. A lot of people who are homeless suffer from money loss, alcohol or drug addiction.
Homes are made of memories and if you sell a home you will be sad because you have wonderful memories and don’t want to leave them. I have memories of my old home. I think back to memories of me laughing, crying and having good time. I love to look at things that have to do with the memories. Memories are important.
My home is a wonderful place to live. It has all the necessities like bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms and much more. My family and cats make it a home. I’m lucky to have an awesome home. My home is not very big but it is still my home. When I look at a mansion I think, “I wish I could live in there”. But a homeless person’s point to view would see a big cottage as a mansion.
I am lucky to have a home because at home I am helped, loved, cared for and fed. I am also treated to holidays such as Halloween, Christmas and Eid.
If your home is being taken away from you, you would know what it’s like to open the cupboard and see barely anything. At my home, I open, the cupboard and see it bulging with food.
To me, my house is a Home, and my home is pure family. I am so lucky to have a home and I think we should be nicer to homeless people. So remember, a house is a place but a home is everything.
