Home to me

Home to me is a place to feel happy, calm, and relaxed after a horrible day. At home, I feel happy when I have free time to do the things I want to do. Home is more than a building with four walls and a roof. Home is a place I can eat sleep and feel comforted every day. My family loves me, hugs me, makes me happy and secure. Where we love is home. It is where we can leave our feet but not our hearts. Home holds my family closer together and makes me feel important. It’s a place I’m encouraged to try new things, a place where I can be me! I feel real, welcomed, and safe at home. Home is where your story begins. My home is where my dreams, culture, story, and where my imagination never ends. I love my family and my home even in the hard times. I could not feel this way if I didn’t have a home or family. Home is a very important thing in my life. I’m very lucky to have a home and a family because some people don’t have one. That is why I’m very special to have a home.
