Meaning of Home

To me home used to be a place, a building, but now I realize that that’s not true. Home is family, warmth and support.

My family makes me feel at home. My family makes me feel loved and happy. My mom is the sound of music. My dad is happy and playful. My pug gives me a big warm hug. My family is my home.

Home is warmth. It’s a crackling, blazing fire that helps me to calm down. It’s my soft blanket that brings me happiness and my fluffy pillow that helps me to sleep every night. It’s my stuffed animals that make me have a happy feeling that I’m at home. When I’m at home I feel warmth.

Support to me is when I am crying and my mom helps me to feel happy. When I’m down in the dumps my dad helps me by doing a bad dad joke to bring a smile to my face.

Now that I realize that home is family warmth and support I’m much happier.
