What HOME means to me

When people hear or say the word home everyone starts to think about something very personal.
Home means not only the city, town, country or residential place where the person lives. It’s something else, it’s a whole universe of the best feelings and moments of your life which is memorized and treasured in your heart.
If you think about home you’ll imagine the place where you were born and grew up. Where you play with your friends your favourite games, where you go to school and where everyone speaks your language and understands you and you feel like you belong. Home is the place where you should feel comfortable and relaxed. The place where you are surrounded by people who you love and people who truly love you. Where you follow traditions and your favorite food is made. Home is the place where you should feel safe not only from the rain, storms, and the cold, but also from negativity, sadness, and loneliness.
Home is the place you are always welcome no matter day or night no matter how old you are no matter who you are you’re always welcome home. Home is the place where you always want to come back. Like the birds following their instinct going back home, so are we following are feelings and memories going back home too. No matter how nice another place is you want to be home.
