The people and animals living in it ! For me, it's my Hound and I and it's our home ! Gives a home it's distinct character.
people over look the small things when it comes to this. What makes a house a home is being able to go into the kitchen and make yourself a hot chocolate and relax on the couch whenever you please and not being told you can't and being bossed about. What makes a house a home is not feeling anxious and worried 24/7 in the place you're staying in, a place where you can always feel relaxed and calm, a house is a home when you can take a shower ever you want without being told when and being bitched at whenever you do decide to have one at your own time. (if i knew what i know now before i moved into this "home" i would have said NO FUDGING WAY)
A lot of love.
Anywhere you are, as long as those you love are with you.
What home could be complete without a wall of books and your faithful cat?
The British-born American poet Edgar Guest (1881-1959) has addressed your question:
* * *
It ain't home t' ye, though it be the palace of a king
Until somehow yer soul is sort o' wrapped round everything.
The energy that its inhabitants bring.
It's not the size of the structure nor the "things" within it .. I've seen some magnificent million dollar houses that lack something ..something that even a small 1 bedroom apartment can offer given the right elements .. The energy from love and comfort.
The security of your surroundings, a comfy chair, the aroma of pizza and a pet. No home is complete without a pet, even if it's just a stuffed animal.
Differences between house and home starts from the very start of it's definition. We have many houses in the world, but which is your home ?
Home is where you could love and feel beloved
Home is where you can reach your comfort zone and live as you wish
Home is a place empty of forces and dominance, constant stress and tension caused by people or equipment within.
Home is where you can relax and enjoy your time.
Home is where the heart is.
Love and a pet.
If you have a family you always have a home. Even without a house! You could call almost any place of shelter a "home", in light of that.
Family that stays together and share their problems.
there! Very good question and I do hope that you have collected wise answers! I
personally believe that a house simply is all about brick walls! It has no
life, warmth or comfort. However, a home is where you want to be as it has a
certain level of luxury and calm. It also has the family, pets and the ability
to keep you safe. We all need a home!
For me it's just about memories with your loved ones.
A house becomes a home if your family is there to help you and be
by your side whenever you are happy or sad. You can also be as comfortable as
you want there. According to me, a person who lives with his dear ones is
happier than someone who lives away from his dear ones.
