The Great Adventure Called Home

Home the many things and possibilities. Home is a safe place where you feel free. Home a greeting and warm place to let go. Home is an adventurous place where your imagination can roam free.

When I think of home, I think of the many fun things I did growing up in it like when me and my many siblings built a pillow mountain at the bottom of the stairs and jumped on it. Another thing I think of when I think of home is the people in it, although my siblings can be mean they have a nice side to. I did not realize that until I was seven. I am the youngest so I get hurt and blamed the most …sadly.

Another thing I think of when I think of home is the safety and the warmth it provides. When I was younger, I was terrified of the dark so when I got up in the night to do my business I would afterwards sprint to my room. I still think a little on the down side on what could happen but I feel safer in home now way more then back then. Especially in these times when it is so incredibly cold outside, home is very important because it is nice and warm.

At home is where your creativity actually starts to be fun and kinda wired like something I don’t usually like sharing is how I fall asleep. I usually think of a movie I have watched recently like Lord of the Rings. Then I imagine if the movie had me as an important character then eventually I would fall asleep.

I think it is very important to have a home which is why I am participating in this writing competition. I can’t imagine life without a home. I am so excited that I could be a part of this even if i dont win I still feel I am helping which feels amazing! Your business in general is amazing. The thing you guys do is awesome and the fact I get to be a part of that makes my year knowing I helped someone get the opportunity to feel the meaning of home just like me!
