Home

Home is where I feel safe and protected.
When I’m not having the best day, home is where I can express my proper feelings and not have to hide them in front of anyone.

When people enter a home, they should feel happy, warm and cozy.
Home is a place where you shouldn’t hear the sound of busy cars going by every morning. You should see the beautiful and colourful sunrise and hear the birds chirping peacefully.

Although homes can be all cozy and perfect, there are people who struggle with homes and jobs and we need to try and help those people as much as we can.

Each time I go home and see my dad, it reminds me of the safe and comfortable space I have to be free and not have to worry about anything. I think everyone should be thankful for what they have
because not everyone has some of the stuff you and I have. I am so very thankful that I have a home to go to each day!!
