What’s my idea of home

I think the idea of home is not an object but a feeling. Home to me means you have to have good friends, love and a since of belonging. So now I’m going to tell you why I think home is a feeling not an object.
Friends are really important to have in a home. I had a really hard time when I moved because I missed my friends. Just having friends near or in a house can make it feel like home. I really think friends are really important to have in or near a home.
Love is another really important feeling to have in a home. Being near or with someone you love is important to have in a home. I think love is such a powerful feeling everyone should have in their home.
The last and most important thing to have is having a since of belonging. For me a since of belonging is feeling like you can be your self and still be accepted for who you are. Also being comfortable in your home important. When I’m around my siblings I feel a sense of belonging
Now you know the reasons why I think home is a feeling not a house. I’m so thankful to have a house but I’m more thankful to have a home.
