Home Sweet Home How would you feel if you went into a business, to fill out an application for a job, and had to leave the section blank that was asking for your address? I am sure that you might feel lost, sad, or even embarrassed. On the other hand, how would you feel if you were able to fill in the section asking for your address, but did not feel like you could call this place home? Maybe you would have feelings of being alone, not loved, or not even cared about. I always hurt for people, that I see on the streets, that are homeless, and I wish that I could do something for them. But, I pity those who have a house and cannot consider it a home. Home is not a building; it is something you create with lots of love. A meaningful place, to some people, could be a park or even outside, under a tree. To others, it may be their house or bedroom, because that is where all of their belongings and most meaningful possessions are kept. I do not have just one place that is meaningful to me, but many small places. Among all of these places, my home is the most important to me. I believe that a home is not an object of ownership like a house is. To me, a house is just a building used for shelter, but a home is a place where you can always have a family to count on. Also, at home, the door is always open for me, the people living there will always love me, and I am sure that there will always be something good to eat, when I go home. No one should get too attached to a house because there is always a chance of moving, but in a home the same people will always be there waiting. I am sure that home has a different meaning to everyone, and not everyone has a house, but everyone should belong to a home. ... ... middle of paper ... ... on the telephone, and my mom either in the kitchen or outside in the sun. When I come home from school during the weekend, I also expect to smell a freshly cleaned house and hear a mixture, of sounds, from the television and radio drowning in the background. Always having a home also secures the thought that I will always have people close to me in this place of security, that I know I can always count on. It is such a good feeling to know that I can count on the people in my family for anything in the world. There are so many good feelings that people can get from belonging to a home. At home, I know that the door is always open for me, the people living there will always love me, and I am sure that there will always be something good to eat there. Because the people that I love the most, my family, are living in my home, that is what matters most to me.
