The Meaning of Home

To me home is somewhere my family is. And somewhere I could go to feel safe, somewhere I feel loved. At home is where I am able to rest, to eat, and to talk with family members. Home is something that I am very grateful for because I know there are many families or people who do not have anything like that. Home isn’t just somewhere I stay that has a roof on it, it’s family, memories, where I eat, sleep, shower, etc. I am also very grateful to have my own bedroom, and my own bed, a lot of people don’t have that either. I am also glad I am loved, and safe. To me, “home” wouldn’t be home without my family, especially without my father. Also home wouldn’t be home if I didn’t have my dog here.
