Home

Home is where our heart is 
The phrase home can mean different meanings to everyone  
To me home is not just a warm, comfy shelter 
 
Home is a place where you feel safe  
It is a place hopes and dreams come true 
It is a place where you have family  
It is where you can relax 
 
Home is where you have your own life and culture 
It is where you have family to support  
It is where you have laughing sounds everyday  
 
Home is where you can be messy or organized  
It is where you are respected  
It is where friends can gather 
It is a place where you get your own time when you need it 
 
Home is where you get freedom  
It is where I grew up 
It is where words matter 
It is where there is faith 
 
Home is where you are grateful 
It is where you are proud of yourself 
It is where you are loved  
It is where you are thoughtful  
 
It is a place you can never ever forget 
 A house is built by hand but a home is built with love, care, and support 
I hope that every family will have a home not just a house.
