A Home

When I think of home, I think of feeling safe and secure. Just thinking of that beautiful feeling of home, I begin to tingle! To me, there is no other place where I can feel so comfortable and so loved, and my family creates that.
Home is so much more then walls and a roof over your head. It’s the joyful memories that are written all over them. It’s more powerful then endless sleep and food to eat, it’s those precious moments you spend with loved ones. I can be myself beneath these walls, and I’m thankful for that.
A home to me is a magical place. It’s the place where the tooth fairy comes and gets my teeth, and the Easter Bunny comes and leaves me treats. Home is where Santa Clause hopefully comes to leave you magical presents, and so many more celebrations!
Now, some people don’t have any of these things. They don’t have their own home, or a roof over their head. To me, home is a piece of my life, and knowing some children don’t have one, makes my heart begin to hurt.
Everyone should always feel safe, creating joyful memories and connections with your family, I feel everyone deserves a home, so thank you habitat for humanity!
