Meaning of Home

There are a lot of things we take for granted but one of the biggest things we take for granted is home. Home isn’t just a word, it is so much more. Home is having a warm roof over your head to keep you safe. Home is having a cozy bed to keep you warm when it’s cold out. Home is having a furry little friend to snuggle when you’re sad. Home is a place where you can be yourself and not have to worry about what anybody else thinks. Home is a place where you can spend time with your family and have game nights or movie nights. Home is something everybody deserves. The next time you wish you had a new phone or a new video game, just stop and think, do I really need this because some people don’t have a warm roof over their heads to keep them safe or a nice cozy bed to keep them warm when it’s cold out or a fluffy little friend to cuddle when their sad or enough energy to be themselves but the thing you should think about most is that some people don’t have a family to play games with or to watch a movie with or to keep them company. So, the next time you are begging your parents or your family member for something, just think, do I really need this?
