The Meaning of Home

Home is a loving and caring environment. A place to live with our families, pets, and even our friends. I believe a home is more than just walls and a roof. Where you live there may be thousands of houses but only one you can call home. When I was born we lived in a small, old house that needed a lot of care. My parents made a hard choice when I was five to rebuild. During that time we lived with my grandparents. While it was being built, I got to choose the color of my room, and I chose blue. Six months later, we moved into our new home. Home is what we all need.
