Meaning of Home

My home is a place where I am safe. No other place in the world will feel like my home. My home has a big, beautiful yard where I can run free, everything in my yard reminds me of me. My home is a comfortable place with lots of space. My home is the best because its quiet so that I can rest. Rest makes me feel the best! My home is just as warm as a nice summer day. Home means I know I am safe and that another meal will be on the table every day. If I see someone who may not have a home or can’t afford one it always reminds me to be thankful for what I have and remember just how very lucky I am to have a place where I am safe. My home has a happy family in it that I love and spend time with every single day. My home is clean, cozy and everyone in it has a big smile on their face. I once saw someone eating from a trash can. It was one of the saddest things I have ever seen I was so sad that my heart hurt from seeing that. Now I try to be as thankful as I can be because I learned from that moment that I am so lucky just to have a meal every day. I am even lucky enough to have a camper witch we can go on trips and explore new places. Although my camper is not our home it feels like home when I go on a new adventure with my family. If my family is with me anywhere under shelter with me, they make it feel like our clean cozy home where we actually live.
