Meaning of Home

There’s a difference between a house and a home. A house is just walls, a roof, and windows. It doesn’t look like there is much to it.
A home is a place with memories.
Maybe it’s that painting that you walk by every morning that just makes you smile. Or maybe it’s the plant that makes you feel alive.
My home makes me feel safe from the outside world when it is cold. It’s a place where I can sleep comfortably.
Outside of their home some people don’t always feel safe. So everyone should have a place to call home.
