What Home Means to Me

A home is not a house, a home is a sanctuary where I can feel safe and loved by my family. Home is where I have food, water and a warm place to sleep. Home is where I can play with my dog, I can let out my feelings and have someone there to make me feel better. Home puts a smile on my face. My home is a place where I can sing and dance like nobody’s watching. Home is a place where I can be myself and nobody is criticizing me. Sometimes I forget how fortunate we are to have a roof over our heads, people who love us, food, water and clothes on our backs. Home is a beautiful place and I’m lucky to have one!
