Home is

Home is…
Home is not just my house, it is the school where I go to learn. It is the park where I go to play, and the store where I go shopping.
Home is a sanctuary, a place to feel safe and inclusive with friends and family by your side.
It will not always be happy; it will be stressful at times, just keep pushing through. Remember all the family gatherings and all the good times, things get better one by one.
When I really think about home, I think about the rivers, trees, and birds that wake me early in the morning.
What is home? Home is different for everyone. It might not be stressful; maybe your home is happy a lot, but you will always have your stressful days.
That is what home means to me.
