This Is Home

Home is a place of warmth, friendship and jubilance.
Home doesn’t judge you for who you are.
Home is where you heal after being hurt.
Home is where you feel loved at the hardest times, if it’s stressful at work or just a horrendous day.

Now we know some things about home but there’s many more, when we think of home we normally think of our house right away but home could be anything from an apartment to zoo. I know you may be thinking a zoo is not a home but it’s a home to animal’s so a zoo is a home.

Home is anywhere – my home could be my house, my town, my city, my province, my country, North America, Earth, the Milky way, or Space. Home is a place you feel safe and protected. A home is built not by bricks or wood, but with the bond of family. A home gives people a place to care about the people that mean the most to them.

Going back home can mean many things depending on what “home” means to you. If home means people, a place, a state of mind, or peace inside, “going home” means getting comfortable, being who you are and who you really want to be. A house is just four walls and a roof, but a home is made up of everything else inside. A house may be decorated from floor to ceiling with the finest furnishings money can buy. But that will never ever make it a home. A home is a sanctuary.
