The Meaning of Home

Home can mean many things.

It can be a feeling, a memory, or something held close to your heart. To me, home is a place where you can do anything, be anything you desire. Home is a place to be encouraged, to not be afraid.

A home is where you can feel loved above all else. A community or a family that surrounds you, cares for you. Happiness. Those are all things that you would find, feel, experience.

Home is a hopeful place, where your dreams come true, no matter what happens. Your family is there for you, even if they’re not physically with you.

Home is more of a feeling than a place. If you go to your grandparents’ house, you could still feel at home, even if you’re not at the place you’re living. A roof over your head. A sort of protection from the world outside.

Home is the most special thing anyone could ask for.
