The Meaning of Home

A home to me is not a mansion or a cottage, a home is with my family. My dad always says if our house were ever to catch on fire then he wouldn’t care as long as my family was safe. What the house that you live in looks like does not matter, the doors and the floors don’t have to be perfect. My home is a beautiful place where happy thoughts and memories are made, where me and my brother grow up, where we learn, where we play and where we enjoy the night and day. It’s the place I am now and the place I will stay forever with my family. Like I said home is a family and that’s all it will ever be to me.
