Only Hearts can Build a Home

Haven’t we all heard the phrase home sweet home, but what makes a home sweet, and what makes a house a home? A home is a place that you feel not an actual house. Home is a place to feel loved, safe, and comfortable.
When you go home you should feel loved by pets and family. When you get home after a long day of work or school your pet is there to greet you at the door. Your family are there to comfort you if it was a bad day. You should not only feel loved at home, but you should also feel comfortable.
When you get home after a road trip, or after going to a fancy restaurant you feel comfortable. When you are home you can wear whatever you want, because you are not at a fancy restaurant where you wear jeans and a button up shirt you can wear sweatpants and a t-shirt. Even when you feel safe from embarrassment you still feel safe from threats which brings me to safety.
When you get home after a walk you feel safer because you are around family. After you finish walking your dog you feel safe because you are in a house with your family and you know that there is some sort of defense around you like your dads hunting guns, your mom’s kitchen knives and your brother or sisters sports gear.
When you get home you feel loved, comfortable, and safe. Home is not a place, or an object home is a feeling.
