The Meaning of Home

Home is where the heart is and it makes you feel like you’re not alone in the world. Make sure everyone has a home because nobody should be out in the world without a home. My family makes me feel safe and feel like I belong somewhere, and they make me feel like I’m no different than anybody else. My home is where I feel like nobody can judge me for who I am and it makes me feel all warm and cozy.

Everybody should have a home to head home to and relax in. Always try to help make people a home that they can head home to and feel like somebody actually cares about you. My home makes me feel like I actually belong somewhere and it makes me feel like I’m not the only one out there, and it makes me feel like somebody actually realizes me. So if you ever see someone who is out there without a home, give a helping hand so that they don’t have to go through life alone. Never give up on the people who don’t have a place to keep warm and never stop believing that there can be less people in the world without a home. Always help the people who don’t have a home so that they are not out there in the freezing cold.

So if you have a home don’t take it for granted and every second you have take a minute to realise how lucky you are that you have a house that you can keep warm in and play in. My home means the world to me and I couldn’t imagine a life without it. So help every time you can. I love my home so much.
