Home Sweet Home

A home to me isn’t just a structure or a piece of shelter. It’s a place where I feel relaxed and the people around me care and love me. Homes can be anywhere. You can be living in a cardboard box and feel at home. It helps people feel nice in no other form of life can. Some people don’t have homes, places where they feel happy or joyful. They have to live in places that may not suit them or make them feel safe.

If I moved into a bigger place then I live in now, I won’t feel at home, It would overwhelm me and make me feel very uncomfortable. Moving into a smaller home would feel cramped on the inside and out and won’t provide that comforting feeling that a home should have.

Home to me means a place where I feel accepted for who I am, I don’t have to try and fit in to my surroundings. The people around me will love me for who I am. Home is always a place where I am eager to be. Every single thing in a house builds on all the positive feelings and energy, making me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside.

So, homes can come in many different shapes, sizes, colors and textures. It doesn’t matter as long you can feel that feeling inside. It will make you really absorb the phrase, “Home Sweet Home”
