What is a Sanctuary?  It is a place we can go to let go of the day’s stresses.  It comforts us, makes us feel safe, cozy and allows us to exhale.  A person’s sanctuary can mean different things to different people.  While many of us travel to find some sort of departure from our busy lives, what if our sanctuary was our home. Whether your home is a palace or a room you rent, this is where you begin and end your day.   It’s important that it makes you feel happy being there.
