The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home

The meaning of home to me is this: A home is a feeling rather than a place. There is a pretty big difference between a house

and a home. A house is a place where you live. A place with furniture, walls, and a roof. A home is a place or thing that makes you feel happy and safe. In my home there is fighting, yelling and kicking. But there is more happiness and love. There is a family. I think conflicts are what help make a home and family. I mean, no one is perfect.

Home is a safe place, some people have more than one home. Like their warm cozy bed, and a book. The saying “make yourself at home” means get comfortable. Make yourself feel safe, not move everything to look like your house. That’s what home is to me, but if home to you means furniture and walls well, that’s your opinion not mine.

Home to you could be an actual house, or book. But my home is where ever my family is.
