What Home Means to Me

Home to me is all about the people that surround me in my home. Not how fancy it is or how big it is. All I need is people that love me and the people I love. Family is what is important.

If family isn’t there, it doesn’t feel like home. It’s just another house. It’s not the place where memories come back. Like our family movie nights where we cuddle on the couch and watch movies.

For a place to be home I need important people. They need to give me a spark of joy or my home is not meaningful to me. The people in my home don’t just have to be family. It can be friends, neighbours, anyone I love or that cares about me to make it home.

A house is a building not a home. I have to have family and people that love me for a perfect home.
