What home means to me

All 7.8 billion people on earth deserve a home. A home that they love. A place where you want to stay in and spend time in and put all their stuff. When you think of it, a house and a home are two different things. A house is a sturdy structure with space inside, but home is love. All the memories that you have of your childhood, that’s home. All the mouthwatering smells of cookies in the oven while you’re talking and laughing with the people you care about, That’s home.
No matter what you call home whether it’s a tent or a plane or maybe even a garden, you’ve made a personal connection to your home. You learn it’s a place where you can live life to the fullest, it’s a place where you can learn to love and care for the people that surround you. It’s the place that brings together friends and family no matter where they live. It’s a place of peace. It’s a place where you can feel safe and comfortable. It’s a place with passion, it’s the place where you can do whatever you want within your own boundaries. It’s the place where you can laugh your heart out. Your home is so important to you, like it’s part of your family. And you want to take care of your home no matter where it is. But overall, Home is love.
