Meaning of Home

A house is where you live, home is where you grew up. It’s important to everyone to have a home because if you don’t have a home you live on the streets. Belonging to a family makes you feel like you have more friends. A house makes a home if you’re happy. Having a home makes you feel comfortable.

In A Stranger at Home series by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak-Fenton,
Olemaun felt that she was a stranger in her own home because she spent so much time at school, she forgot a lot of stuff about home. But her family still felt the same because they are family.

In Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne was an orphan, no family and no home but the Cuthberts adopted her and now she has a family and a good life that she can call home.

I am happy that I have a family who love and take care of me that I call home.
