Meaning of Home

Meaning of Home

By: Lila Norman-Laver

Home is like…

Cats on top of the fireplace,

Snuggling into the fake fluffy snow,

as they purr away the cold winter.

Home is like…

The sound of “pitter patter” of raindrops bouncing on top of the roof.

As we snuggle inside our warm, soft blankets.

Home is like…

The enticing smell of warm chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven.

Home is like…

Curling up on the couch next to my mom watching Christmas movies and sipping hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows.

Home is like…

Cuddling with my hedgehog as I watch movies, under a fluffy blanket, and pet her soft, relaxed quills.

Home feels like…

Acceptance, like relaxing, like happiness.

This is what home is to me.
