What Home Means to Me

Home is a very special place to me. Not everybody has a home. A house is different than a home, because a home includes many special things. A house is a place and a home includes many special things. A house is a building and home is a feeling. To me, home means love, memories, and comfort.

Love is very special to me because it’s in my home. My home would not be a home without love. I feel love when I come home to my family and I give them hugs and kisses. They make me feel loved when they say, “I love you, Sarah”. They show they love me by taking good care of me, cooking special breakfast, and family outings like shopping. They help me with my homework too.

Memories are very important to me, because home helps make memories. Even if you didn’t make memories at your home they would still be memories. Christmas is a memory that I make every year. My birthday parties and celebrations are good memories too. I keep these at home even after I move on. One of my memories is from when I was 2 years old I went on T.V with my dad for his work. I have many more memories but it would take years to tell them all.

Comfort is something I will always want to find in my home and it’s easily found in my home. I find comfort when I lay down at the end of the day I feel so relaxed. I feel calm at home because I will not get judged. I also feel calm when I see people I love. I’m more relaxed at home than anywhere else.

That was what home means to me. I love my home and whatever is in it. My home is probably different from other’s homes because everybody is different. My home is a lot better when my family and pets are around. Home to me is a place full of memories, comfort, and love.
