A house can become a home when…

A house is not a home at first when you move in. A house is not a home when you assemble a new doorbell or door-knob. A house can only become a home when a good meal is made, a couch has been sat on and a movie has been played. A house becomes a home when your mother reads you a bedtime story to comfort you during a thunderstorm. A house is a home when the slightest kind act has been passed and shared around to one person, to another, to another. All these things are filled with people because people make a house into a home. I think everybody deserves to experience all of these amazing things so we all should help try to make a house a home.
