Have You Ever Thought… What having a home means?

For some people, having a home means owning some property. A place that is yours. For others it may mean to rent or lease but it still grows to feel like home. Home is also a place for family.

Someone has well stated it when they said, "Home is where they have to take you in whether they want to or not."
