The meaning of home

The meaning of home
For me my home is somewhere I try new things, and to be brave.
Even if I fail, my family has my back.
I love them and I have their backs.

Home is a place to feel safe.
When I walk down stairs made out of wood and have carpet on them I see my family.

I remember all the good times, the jokes and the memories.
I am so grateful that I have my family.
I’m grateful that I have a home to love them in.

When I am cool from the snow outside, I can come inside and get warm.

The lights make the house all lit up but it’s my family that makes it so bright. Some people can be scared of their basement.
I say they are scared of being alone.

My family helps when we are scared.
My family helps when we are sad.
My family helps wherever there is helping to be done.
They do that in a house that is filled with love.

Everyone needs a home to be loved in.

Home is where I learned to talk.
Home is where I learned to walk.
Home is where you fall.
Home is where you get back up.
Home is where your heart is.
Home is where your family is.
