Home is Where the Heart Is

A home holds some of my greatest memories like my first steps and grandpa’s 90th birthday. A home is where you feel comfort, where you are loved when you are being you. A home is where new friends are made and where old ones reunite. A home is where your family is held together. A home is a shelter where everyone is welcome. A home is where I feel safe to grow. A home is love. The saying “Home is where the heart is,” is true, a home keeps your heart warm inside. A home is something everybody deserves to have. A home is where you can always hear the sound of happiness. Love will always mean a home. A home can be anything you need it to be. A home is where you leave in the morning and come back to in the afternoon. A home to some people isn’t always a house. A home can be a tent, a mattress and some blankets or even the side of the road. A home is something you can count on to be there for you when you need to face the storm. No matter how small your house is, it will always have enough room for someone else. A home is where anything is possible. There’s small homes and big homes but it doesn’t matter how big your home is, it only matters that you feel safe in your home.
