Home
A home doesn’t have to be all big, and fancy, with lots of rooms. A home doesn’t have to have a gigantic backyard with fountains and a butler.

A home isn’t just screws, wood, windows and bolts.
A home isn’t just that, it’s more than that. Much more.

A home isn’t a place to be embarrassed. A home isn’t a place where you are left out. A home isn’t a place where you feel scared, or worried.

Sure, all homes are screws and wood hammered together. But that’s not all. There has to be a foundation, a foundation of love.

A home should be where you feel secure, where you can cry, laugh, and be silly. A place where you feel wanted and a part of something.

A home is a place where you are accepted and loved for who you are. A home is a safe spot where you can share anything with your family.

A home is a place of shelter from a storm, mentally and physically. A home is an anchor where the waves in your life will settle, Where you know you won’t be judged because of your appearance or personality.

A home is where you know you are safe. A home is a place where you are you. It’s the start of your journey, the base of your heart.

Always remember that no matter where you are, what your home looks like, or what people say:
a home will help you find your way.
