What Home Means to Me

Home is a thing that is hard to explain
A house is there when it is built, but a home needs somebody’s heart.

Home is that subconscious feeling that “Yes, this is where I want to spend my time.”
Home is that subconscious feeling that everybody wants to have
But the feeling some people may never have

If the heart of the home is the size of the Grinch’s
It may never feel like home

Homes need heart
Hearts need homes
To have those hearts deprived of that feeling doesn’t just give them no home
It gives them less of a chance to create, eat, sleep somewhere
Home is like a little bubble where everything feels safe
Imagine having none of that
It would be devastating
Even to have some of that
Can be magical at times.

House+ Heart = Home, but it’s so much more than that.
