Everyone has some object that has personal importance to them.
It might be a photo, a doll, food or even a whole house and you always cherish it around you.

It's not just for the looks, not just a decoration - it is something purer. It may remind you of the good old days or it may relieve your sorrow whenever you feel lonely, even if it's empty at home.

It is like your mother's sweet bread. It always keeps you warm, softly, everyday.
Hopefully home will be like a nest, getting you back to life, time after time again.
