Meaning of Home

Meaning of Home

“A house is made of boards and beams, a home is made of love and dreams.” That is entirely true. Some people believe that a home can only be a pretty and clean. That’s not true, a home is where you feel you belong. The only problem. There are a lot of people that don’t feel they belong. And we need to fix that.

My home isn’t a house. It’s a neighbourhood, a community, a school, a church and a family. When I’m at school, I feel I belong. When I’m at church, I feel I belong. When I’m at my house, I feel I belong. When I’m with my family, I feel I belong. And I know that I belong. That is the feeling that everyone deserves.

When I go home each day, I feel safe to do what I want. I know that my house is stable, clean and affordable. I know that my house has nice furniture and bedrooms that were a reasonable cost. But my home has friends and good feelings. My home is peaceful, comfortable and enjoyable.

So today when you go home and want to help change the world, take a look in the mirror and change it.
