the meaning of home

Home. When you hear that word, what do you think of. A mansion? a condo? a house? But home isn’t any of those. To some people, home is where their belongings are found. To others, home is where they feel happy. Loved, cherished. With their family, maybe. Perhaps home to you is where you will make memories that you will remember for the rest of your life. Home is a lot of things, for me and others. Home isn’t just walls with a roof. You don’t have to have a mansion, a castle, or even a house to have a home. You just have to have people who care about you and love you. To make a long story short, home is where the heart is.
