Home is Where the Heart is
They always say home is where the heart is. I never really knew what that meant until I got older. Home is always going to be there no matter what or where you go in life. Some people may consider home to be at their parents’ house, their own house, or living with someone else. It can also be some place you really like or somewhere you spend a lot of time at. It may be many different places at the same time. You can consider a lot of places home and still feel at home there. Also, you should never forget where you came from and what home meant to you.
Where would home be to me? Home would be in Pocahontas County, WV, in a little place called Buckeye. It is also known to be my parents’ house and where I grew up at. Why do I love this place so much? For the reason it has the most beautiful views and it is so peaceful and quiet. It is way back in the country. It also overlooks the river and the mountains across the river. It also has a big field that has different species of wildlife in it. There are also some many beautiful animals that are around my mom and dad’s house. I love to sit there and watch the animals run, play, and eat. I also like to just go out and sit and think about things and just get away from everything for a little bit. It is everything that you would think of.
What home means to me is family time. Spending time with my parents and my grandparents is why I love home so much. It is filled with so much love. Love is an important thing to me especially when my family is involved. It also means that I can go anywhere on my parent’s land and I can have alone time to think about things and to help me with my homework, but it also helps me get away from all the craziness in life for just a few minutes. Home will always hold a place in my heart that will never change and it means so much to me and always will. Home has so much love,...
