Meaning of home

To me, home means, family, love, sincerity, and my friends. My home is slightly new to me, but I am getting used to it. I have had a lot of memories at my house. But the most important thing to me is family. Family is a wee bit like home. But what family means to me is the connected love between me and my ancestors. Also since my mother and father are divorced it is slightly harder for me to go back and forth all the time. But now since we have a new schedule it’s going good for me, life seems pretty decent right now. Now back to home, I have a really stunning life right now, because of all the lucky things that I have been given lately.
Also something else I am grateful for is the roof over my head, food and water. I just think that home is the place where I always want to be. The reason why home feels best to me is because all the joy and it brings to my heart and all the hilarious times we have together. But we don’t do that anymore, since my Mom and Dad got divorced some of those things don’t really happen, but when I go back and forth at each house. I have striking times at my Mom’s and Dad’s. But sometimes in my dreams I love to think positive a lot and it makes me feel good about myself.
Also when I get to high school I feel like my Mom and Dad will be friends again, so that’s why I like to be really positive to myself. And that’s what home really means to me in my heart, and I hope life turns out good in the future.
