What Home Means to Me

I am grateful and thankful for my home and family. My home is very special because it keeps me warm and everyday when I come home from school I see my family with smiles on their faces. I can’t even imagine not having a home. I have seen and heard about people not having a home and I feel really sad. But yesterday I found out there are places for them like shelters and much more. I am very glad that they have places like that because they are as special as everyone else.

Anyways, my home is special to me, I guess, because I get to see my family with smiles on their faces everyday when I’m home. Seeing that makes me smile and happy. I guess my home is kinda my family. If I didn’t have them I don’t know what I would do. So that’s what home means to me.

I also feel safe and loved and much more that I can’t find the exact words. Anyways, if I didn’t have a family or a home I don’t know what I would do. I wouldn’t feel safe is one thing. If I didn’t have my family I wouldn’t have a home because they’re my home.
