What does home mean to me

This is our life. It’s where we have awesome sleepovers with our friends, huge yummy feasts with our family, pray at night, sleep in our cozy beds with our stuffys, and make awesome memories. That’s it! It’s the memories that make life perfect. Remember that time when we were jumping on my bed, and then we heard a crack.. That’s when I broke my bed. You would never really think of this, but if we had no memories, then our homes would feel empty. Just think of all those people out there, sitting on the street starving with no food, or even no loved ones sitting next to them.“A home is not just where we rest our heads at night. Our homes tell a story of who we were, who we are, and who we will become” – That was a phrase from Studio Mcgee, and she was so right. Our homes take us through our childhood, and it builds us into the person we will become. It’s not like our home can talk or see us, but it makes us feel loved, always! That is just how grateful we are! We have all the things we need, including a beautiful home inside and out! Even if it’s small, big, narrow, or wide, it’s still our’s, and it will always be our’s. “Home is where we can make mistakes and be forgiven.They created a home where I felt safe. I could make mistakes. Failure was not punished.” – Sarah WIlliams.
