What home means to me

My home is somewhere I feel like a huge weight
has been lifted off my shoulder. The corner house that my bus passes everyday before and after school. The place I first walked and learned to read my first book. A home is more than just a building. It’s memories.
It’s somewhere where I can make jokes and feel cared for. I feel like I can finally take a breath after a long day. My home is a place with a warm meal waiting for me. It’s a place I get inspired to do my best like at school. It’s somewhere we can celebrate the good things in life and learn from the bad. My family helps me through major obstacles. They support you no matter what.
My family isn’t perfect but there’s no place like it. This is the place I’m happy to call home! Everyone deserves to have this.
