Meaning of Home

We all love are homes and here are a couple reasons why because home means family, love, joy, everywhere you go you feel happiness. You feel cozy and warm because you’re with the people you love. When your home you feel welcomed, safe from all your fears that you’ve ever been afraid of and even at the loneliest of times you know that your family and home will keep you safe from the darkest days. The meaning of home means freedom, in your home can be whoever you want to be whenever you want. In your home you should never feel ashamed of who you are or what you want to be because in your home you are always free and you can be whoever you want to be. You can always count on your home to make you feel safe, loved, happiness. Your home is filled with happy memories with you and your family from when you were just a little kid. Home means cuddling under a blanket while watching a movie with your family because it’s too cold to spend the night outside. It means gathering around the dinner table saying your thanks for everything your home can give you even though you don’t know that your home is the one giving it to you. Your home gives you almost everything you need but some of us don’t know that it’s the home that’s giving it to us. Everybody’s home is different in their own way and that’s what makes it your home, so whether your home is messy or clean it’s always going to be your home and it’s always going to have its own unique style. It’s not the walls and furniture that makes a home it’s the people inside it that makes it so special. You should always care for your home just because you will feel much better knowing that your home is being cared for as much as it does for you. A home keeps everything you need inside.
Some people don’t have homes and I bet every person that did not have a home before and now has a home feels very proud just to be able to call a place their own, just to have walls, food a real bathroom and every time I hear that happen, I feel grateful for what I have and what I don’t have. I think the people that help homeless people are really making a difference in our world and in people’s hearts. Home can mean a lot of things but when i think of home i can only think of 5 things : love, joy, happiness, freedom and family. We should all be thankful for what we have in life and let’s help the people who need it the most and let’s make a difference. We all deserve a home.
