What Home Means to Me

What home means to me. Home is a place where I sleep, and I feel safe. I know I am home when I can smell the fireplace and taste my mom’s homemade broccoli soup, I feel warm and cozy and I am never scared. Home is a place to come back to after a hard day’s work or even after a day of fun. Home is a place to take cover from a rainstorm and a place to never be scared and always feel warm and cozy. Home is a place that you don’t need to be at your best that you can be lazy and tired, and nobody will ever care but there are sometimes when your home gets dirty and messy and not organized so you had to take a couple hours to clean it up. Home is not only a place to sleep and to feel yourself home is also a part of life and sometimes life is not fun, so all we can do about it is suck it up and move on. Home is a place where love is shared, and tears are left but at the end of the day home is the place where everyone loves, where people can laugh, and play have fun and be themselves. Home is a place that most people put in a lot of work. To me home is the place that I come home to after a hard day’s work. Home to me is also a cozy place where I feel comfortable and not under pressure, but home can be anything really. Home is whatever you what it to be, so home is a great place that you should love. That is what home truly means to me.
