The Meaning of Home

The Meaning Of Home

Home is not just a roof, a door and walls. Home is where I snuggle up on the couch with my cat. When I do that it makes me feel at home. But what home means to me is different. Home is a place where you let tears roll down your face, where you can smile ear to ear. You make new memories everyday, and you make new friends. At my home I get good meals and good sleep. Sometimes I sit in my room and think about others who don’t get all the food I do, who don’t get the sleep like I do, who doesn’t have the shelter like I do! Home is whatever feeling that you feel when you are home. Home does not have to be your physical home it could be, the hockey rink, the soccer field, your gymnastics class, school, it could be anywhere you feel you belong. This is why I’m thankful for the comfortable home I live in! Also just maybe try to think about others and helping them find a home!
