The Best Home In The World!

The Best Home In The World

Hey people reading this! I’m about to tell you strangers what my home means to me. You probably want me to write you a poem… NOPE! I just love the inspiring feeling that this writing will give $10 to Habitat For Humanity. My home is a very peaceful and loving place. I love when my dog runs to greet me at the end of the day, I can see the happiness in her eyes when she charges full speed extatically trying to soak up as much of my attention as she can. On Sundays we make spongey, sweet, delicious pancakes for brunch. But when I think about how lucky I am I think how lucky I am to experience this. I’m not talking about the dogs or the pancakes, I’m talking about the warm cozy feeling of home. So when you have time try to do something kind like volunteering, picking up litter or even asking someone how their day was. Little things like that make a big difference. It will make you feel good inside. I don’t even care if I get 1st place, because knowing that this writing will give $10 to build homes for people less fortunate is reward enough. When you do something nice for someone, you start a spark and when you have enough of those sparks you start a kindness fire that burns brightly. When that fire burns out, you add some kindling. I hope that I’ve inspired you, and if I haven’t that I’m sorry for wasting your time.
