What home means to me

What Home Means to me
There are so many different things in a home, some you can’t touch and some you can. You can touch books, furniture, glasses plates and cutlery. You can also touch the walls that keep you save from storms and the lights brightening your home. You can’t touch the love your family has for you or the support they give you. Health, smiles, respect, and the happiness you share are all important things in homes but you can’t touch any of them. Some of these things can relate to each other. The walls of your home might feel like they support you when they keep you safe from storms. Lights seem so happy the way they glow brightly and they can sometimes make people happy too. A book can make you feel so many things like love, support, and safety.
Memories are so important in life they can be good or bad and allot of memories take place in your home. Old memories can make you smile when you see the place where they took place or when you think about them. They can remind you to do or not do something. New memories are always being made. Memories can change over time depending on how you look at them, something might seem terrible as a little kid but when you are older it might seem silly.
There are so many things to be thankful for in our homes. Air conditioning keeps us cool in the summer, family supports us and loves us in hard times, food, water, pets, and books are some other things to be thankful for. It’s important to feel loved and supported every day. We should be thankful for all of this and so much more.
