What Home Means to Me

When I think of home, I think of the place that keeps me safe no matter what. The place where everyone loves me, and I love them. The place where my family is, where my sisters are, where my dog is. When I leave it’s the last place is see. My home isn’t just a building with four walls its way more than that. I’m so grateful to have a safe place to stay, because not everyone can afford place to stay. My home is always open to stay I don’t even have to think twice about letting them stay with me. My home is everything to me. I’ve lived in my house for 4 years and every time I walk through the door, I still feel the same way I felt when I first moved in, when me and my sister ran up the stairs and started doing handstands, because all the rooms were empty. I will always remember that for the rest of my life. I don’t remember moving into my old house because I was so little. I think that every person should get that chance to experience that feeling once their life. And I think it’s awesome that you guys are making it so people can get that chance.
