The Meaning of Home

Home for me is a really special place. It is a place where I can be myself and just let go all of my worries. It’s where I feel loved and secure. My home for me, is not just a house. It’s a wonderful compassionate place full of love.
Home for me is also a place I can keep my heart because home is the place where I belong. My home has many different rooms but where I feel I belong the most is my room. My room is a place where I can be myself.
When I’m in my room, I’m in my own little zone. When I come into my living room I open that zone to my family. My living room is also a very special and belonging place in my home. It’s where everyone comes together to talk about life and how things are going. In my home, the living room is what makes home a real home.
My home isn’t just rooms, and a kitchen, and a living room. My home also has a lovely backyard. In summer time my family gets together on the deck to have dinner. My brother and I like to go on our trampoline. Our backyard really just finishes off our lovely home. My home to me isn’t just wood, paint and dry wall but, the people inside the home, my mom, my dad, my brother and my orange cat. My home to me is where all the love happens. My home to me is where my soul belongs.
