A House to A Home

Home starts with an idea. At first it’s just a house, but it takes time to become a home. Not only does it take a plan, hard work, paint and furniture, it takes family, memories and love. Home is a safe and comfortable place, where sharing and being yourself are the priorities. It has all sorts of memories, happy and sad, and that’s what makes it home. It’s the place where you took your first steps and heard the terrible news of loss. It is when you helped make your sister’s birthday cake, and where you were consoled when you lost your big game. If you are lucky enough to have a home – cherish it. Everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to live, but only so many people are lucky enough to have it. Your home is special. Home is where the heart is, and everyone with a heart deserves a home.
