Where Our Hearts Yearn to Be

Home is where my heart settles. It is a place where I can be silly without being laughed at, and sad without being stared at. Home is a feeling that embraces me with warm, bubbly joy and sweet hugs from those who love me. When I think of home, I think of what makes me feel at home; family, my dog, bed, the smell of warm cooking, music… Home to me is wherever my heart is. Although we may not realize it, we are very lucky, even though we might not have houses, home is where our hearts yearn to be. Home is something we all share, and all should love!
