My Special Home

Home is a place for me and you to live in with our family, wherever they live you live with them. If you live in a house, apartment, condo, mansion or even on the streets no matter where you live you should give it love. Home to me is a place to laugh, play, feel loved and sometimes get in trouble. A home can be where you’re safe and sound or with family and friends.

It could be on the top of a hill or next to the ocean. It doesn’t matter if it’s made of sticks and mud, bricks and cement or even great big blocks of snow, it is still home.

This is our favourite place although we might leave from time to time we always return. A home is love and family, and doing things for others. It is brothers and sisters, and mothers and fathers. It is even selfless acts and most importantly showing your loved ones that you’ll never stop caring.

You are not from home, it is where you belong. Some of us travel all around the world to find it but others find it right in front of them. It is a special place no matter where it is or how it looks. A home can be where you have your heart and all that you adore in one place. This is the place we call home.
