House and home are two different words.A house is just a building made up of bricks and cement but a home is a heavenly place where lives a family.

A house and a home - Two words with very different meanings. Most of the time, their meaning is regarded the same. If you have a house, you have a home, that’s what people think. But this is a false statement. A house is nothing but a material thing, something that can protect us from the scorching sun or a terrible storm. People believe that the bigger their house is, the wealthier they are and the happier the home is.
A home is totally different. A home is where your true happiness lies, a sacred sanctuary where your role joy resides. The comfort and happiness doesn’t mean that you have a big house, the happiness lies in the family that lives in the house. If you are happy, you are home. Maybe that is the reason why they say “Home is where the heart is”. Have you ever heard of the statement, “The House is where heart is”? It sounds strange, don’t you think?
Happiness binds a home. You can buy a big, fancy house with money, but not a happy home. That is the reason why celebrities file divorces, move out and all that nonsense. From the outside, their houses might seem grand, but what about the inside? I would like to share with you a personal experience. One of my family members spent millions and millions of cash in building a big house. He lives by the motto “The bigger the house, the happier the home.” What he doesn’t understand is that a big house doesn’t guarantee a happy home. It saddens me sometimes, when I look at people less fortunate than I am, living is a humble house but the family seems so happy. As I said earlier, it just a personal experience. There might be a lot of other people like him.
