What home means to me

Home is very important. Some people don’t have homes so we are very fortunate to have one. What home means to me is that I have a place to sleep, a place to relax, a place to prepare food and to have a nice spot to stay and a lot of other things.

Life without a house would be hard. My home is where I can keep my belongings, a comfortable place to sleep, a place to prepare my food. I am very thankful that we have a house and we can be warm and have stuff that we sometimes don’t have to have like wifi, devices and some other things.

We also have a home to stay healthy, to stay clean, and I have a less of a chance of getting illnesses. At our house we are well fed, we have a place to keep our food which is kept safe in a fridge or cupboard and a way for it to be cooked properly.

People who have homes should feel happy and don’t have as many worries. We are protected from the weather for an example, from snow/ice storms, or when it is really hot. Another thing is I am well protected and secure from our things being stolen and being physically hurt when at home from strangers.

Home is where family is and where you make good memories that you can cherish.
