No Place Like Home

Home. Home is a place you feel comfortable. Home is a place where you can invite your friends to play with you when they ask you if they can come over. Home is a place where you can have enough food to put on the table so you can eat dinner with your family and not go to bed hungry. Home is a place that you can feel safe and not worry where you can find a place to sleep for the night. It is a place that you can come home from school and be thankful that you will be able to sleep on your nice and warm bed. Home is a place that you have people who love and care about you and want the best for you. Home is a place that you are warm and not sick from the cold air in the winter.
Home is not a place where you do not feel comfortable, it’s not a place where you don’t feel safe. It’s not a place where you have to feel embarrassed that you can’t invite your friends over for a play date. It’s not a place where your embarrassed that your friends will see you sleeping on the park bench. It’s not a place where you feel like no one is there for you and you are not loved. Home is not a place that you will have to worry about getting food. Home is a place that you have a roof over your head and you’re safe and comfortable and loved. No matter how big or small your house is just be thankful that you have a roof over your head. There is no place like home!
