Meaning of Home

Everyone needs a home or a place where they can relax and enjoy spending time with family and friends. A home can be described using the five senses of sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste.

When you walk into a home through the front door you see sunshiny light with a fireplace, where we can hang up hockey equipment after coming home from a hard-working day. You can go into the kitchen while walking on a grey wood flooring to see the dark brown cupboards with home-cooked meals lit by the sunlight. A family room is where you can relax after a long day and watch a family show on TV everyone can all enjoy.

There are many different sounds in a house like a crackling fire giving warmth to your home while the cold winter wind blows outside. When settling down to bed to get some rest you can hear the dryer machine going rumble, thud, whack, whoop, clank, as the are clothes are getting washed. If you want to play hide and go seek or watch a movie with a furry friend by your side.

The smell of a clean fresh house letting in air from the windows being open. When you walk in the door you can smell the sweetness in the air of mom baking. It smells like sweet chocolate chip cookies made with perfection. The feeling of a house makes you feel like your happy where you belong. When you pet my furry pet by the fire it feels soft while giving warmth by the fire. Watching a family movie while and being wrapped up in a blanket munching on popcorn.

The feeling of a home is more than just a place where some people say, but it’s like a locket filled with memories of washing the dog or playing board games and fighting whos the best, but most of all you can enjoy being a family. Playing with friends or having a sleepover and staying up way too late.

Home tastes like mom’s home-cooked meals like thanksgiving Dinner eating turkey, pumpkin pie and washes it down with delicious cranberry juice. Home tastes like the loving mom has when she makes cut up veggies with some ranch dressing on the side.

Home is not just a house. The meaning of is way more than just a word, it’s a place of love and happiness. A home is the meaning of life.
