Home is where the family is. Home is where the things you love are. Home is where the heart is. Now a house is very different. A house has walls and a roof over your head. A house is waiting to be a home, to be filled with love. A home is already filled with love and joy. A house is filled with jealousy. Jealousy from the home. The jealousy fills the walls covering everything with dust, every corner darkening. The only thing left is a dot of light.Then the joy and laughter come and clean the jealousy away. Now it's clean, fresh with happiness. Now it is no longer a house, that house is a home. Thank you Habitat for humanity for making houses become homes.
