What makes a home is very simple: love and safety.

Safety to be your whole self and to say anything, while knowing without a shadow of a doubt that you will always be unconditionally loved by the people there.

It’s true when you’re 5 and when you’re 75.

Home can be a house, apartment, tent, car, aisle in Target, and even in a phone call. It’s about the space you’re in with another person or other people.

It’s not about bricks or walls or appliances or decorations.

If you don’t have love and safety, you are in a place called a building or a dwelling or a house – you are not in a home.

If you don’t have love and safety, you are not home.
