The Feeling Of Home

Everyday, when you walk inside your home, you get a warm feeling. A feeling that nobody can explain. You feel all the stress and sadness wash away as you enter. When you walk inside, you don’t realize how lucky you are to have a place called home.

When you think of the word home, what comes to your mind? Most people think big, but it doesn’t have to be big. It can be an apartment, a mansion or a townhouse. What matters is that it is safe, decent and secure. When I think of the word home, I think of memories. I think of making muffins with my family, I think of Thanksgiving when we have a turkey. I think of how lucky I am to have a place called home.

Home is a place where everyone should belong. Where you could run and jump around. (Just try not to break anything). Where you can sit down at the table every morning and eat breakfast. Where you can have fun! Home is where you feel safe and secure.

My family is a big part of my home. My family makes me happier when I am feeling sorrow. My family is the best family I could ask for and a part of my home. Nobody should be taken away from their home or family. Family is part of our homes and hearts.

Home is a place that some people do not have. I think every family deserves a place to call home. Where they can have fun and not worry where they are going to stay that night. Where they don’t have to worry about their safety. A home is not just four walls and a roof, it’s family, memories and happiness.
