What it Means to Have a Home

Having a home means always having a place to come home to, not taking things for granted, and having a place to sleep. It especially means being surrounded by your loved ones, so when you are cold you have warmth. When you are hungry, you have good food, and when you are thirsty, you have clean water. Having a home gives you a sense of safety and you don’t have to worry about unkind strangers. Having a home makes you comfortable and you have a place to play and sleep. It makes me think of the homeless and how their lives could be made better. A home is a place that must always be appreciated and makes us think of home sweet home.
