What makes a house a home? For most of us the instant response is the people who live there. But beyond the folks you love, what makes your house a home?
Or is it windows that look out on a favorite view, or look into a special space?
Is it the little things you've added, the pictures and knicknacks and curtains that define what home is to you?
Or is it, as my friend Donna said yesterday, just a place that makes us feel happy?
I think I like Donna's definition best. Home is the place we can be happy, surrounded by those who love us and the things we've grown attached to, a place that provides comfort for the heart and soul as well as the body. I think that is what home means to me.
What makes your place home for you?
