What is it like without a home?

What is it like without a home?

I am walking back to my house in the cold, wet, mucky rain. I get to the front door and I am greeted by my pets as I walk into the house. I sit down and get a book and listen to the woodstove fire crackle and I make myself comfortable and look out the window, see the darkness, and think what it is like without a home. I am called for dinner and I run to the table and as I eat it the warm soft touch of the food makes me think what it is like without a home. My home is a cozy house with the rooms you need. When I finish my dinner, I am full, and I am ready to sleep. When I think in my bed what is it like without a home. When I wake up, I feel lucky to have a big, lovely home and a lovely bed. As I get up, I listen to those birds singing and I go downstairs and its warm and I have a good family and an extraordinary house, and I think what it is like without a home. I eat my breakfast and get ready to do my chores and I get my warm shoes that were drying beside the woodstove and I think what it is like without a home. I do my chores and get inside to get on my Tablet. I am lucky to have an entertaining device that I can play games on it. I finish my time and think what is it like without a home.

Home really means to me. Because I would not have any shelter and food and a place to eat. I really am grateful for the furniture and a place to sleep. I have enough entertainment such as my Tablet and other electronics. I have a place to lie down and rest. I have so many games and it will be terrible without a home. I can have a place to hang out and do fun things and I am wondering what is it like without a home. We have enough money; I have a fireplace to keep me warm and my home protects me from the cold and the darkness of the outdoors. I wonder what is it like without a home. I have happiness because the laughter in my home and it makes me comfortable. I feel all safe in my home and I think what it is like without a home. I have enough water and I could sit down and drink my water. I feel much better and when I am sick, I do not want to lie down outside I have a welcoming home and it will stay that way. it will create memories. My home is a glorious house with lots of things to go with it. You cannot judge the house on the outside you have to investigate it and get used to it and you will realize that it has lots of remarkable things to it and that is what happened to me and now I love my house and my whole family does too and my pets. Then I wonder what it is like without a home.

My house protects me from the seasons like Winter. Luckily we have firewood so we could light the woodstove and lie down and think what is it like without a loving home. I come to the dinner table again and I eat my supper and brush my teeth and go to bed and wonder what it is like without a home.
