Meaning of Home

What is the meaning of home? What do you think home means? Some may say a home is just a house, but in my opinion, it’s much more.
Home is not just a house you live in, it’s a place where you feel safe, feel loved and appreciated. It’s where you feel joyful, and feel belonged. You laugh your heart out at home. The most delightful memories are made at home. You never feel alone at home because you have loved ones with you. A home can be anything, anywhere. From apartments to tents, to boats and caves, anything can be your home, as long as you feel loved and belonged. You shall cherish your home forever.
In the Canadien novel Anne of Green Gables, or the series Anne with an E, Anne was a little orphan girl, hoping that one day, she’ll have a home of her own, until she started a brand new life at Green Gables. Having a home of her own changed her life. She was exceedingly grateful.
Some people can’t afford a home, and Habitat for Humanity is striving to help those people. I hope that you continue to live a happy life at your home.
