The Meaning of Home

Home means an enjoyable, happy place where you can live, laugh and learn. It’s somewhere you are loved, respected and cared for and you can be comfortable being yourself. When you look at it from the outside it is just a house.But on the inside it’s a home.

If I get home from school and had a bad or sad day I know my mother is there to comfort me. When I am sad I know where I want to be; I want to be home with my siblings and parents. When I’m at home I am very appreciative to have a warm and cozy place. I know my parents pay the bills and work a lot just so we can have all that we need. My siblings understand me and they know when I’m sad, happy and angry; they are always there for me I could never ask for better siblings.

Home is a place to store old memories and create new memories some will be sad, some will be happy and some will be both. Home is a place where you can have a birthday party, gender reveals and have a great time with family and friends. My mom sometimes says when we eat supper or dinner “The kitchen is the heart of the home”.

I have a special spot. This spot is between an extra bed in my room and my bed. I go in the middle of them both. That is my favorite spot because I can lie down, I can sit up, it’s quiet and the perfect place to read.

Home is just a place to breathe and just be.
