What Home Means to Me!

What home means to me!

When you open the door to your home do you feel love?
Well I do!

I open the door and I get hugs and kisses. But some people don’t get hugs and kisses when they open the door.
Some people can’t even open the door… because they don’t have one to open. So that’s why you need to open the door and give someone a home to feel safe, to feel warm and to feel loved.

When I get out of bed in the mornings and head downstairs and I get hugs and kisses and I feel loved. But again some people can’t get out of bed to a hug and kiss, some get off the ground to a cold damp and wet morning.

I smell delicious food in the Morning, Afternoon and the Evening. Again some people don’t have that which is really sad. Some people are out there trying to steal some food from a farmers market or a little stand on the side of the road, maybe a bake sale or a lemonade stand. All of those poor or homeless people have nothing.

And that’s why you should help someone get a home.
