Meaning of Home

Did you know that there is a difference between a home and a house? A house is a building that you can live in, but it is not yours. It is not home. You don’t feel like you belong. To make a house a home you have to have a family. Home can be anywhere as long as you have your family and you are safe. You need to feel like you belong.

Home has a meaning and that meaning is strong. If it’s so strong it might feel like a song but what really matters at home is that you are safe, happy, feel like you belong and most importantly family and friends.
