My Home Needs Family

What does home mean for you? When I go to take my dog Penny out for a walk, I get thirsty. So then go to my fridge to get some water. But after that I want to go get something after I drink my water. I feel like I want a snack. I look in the pantry and choose what I want and then eat it. But that’s not what home is for me. It’s not food or water but it is being with the people you love. It’s having a safe place to cry after a long hard day and also a place to laugh at my family’s jokes. Home is my favorite place to be because I’m surrounded by people I love. My home doesn’t need to have walls, roof and a door. It is having a safe environment with the people I love.
