In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Oasis.”

A sanctuary is a place you can escape to, to catch your breath and remember who you are. Write about the place you go to when everything is a bit too much. ~ Daily Prompt 1/7/15

My home. I find peace in my home. My home is my sanctuary. It is where I feel safe, protected, and loved. Where I can be me. Where I can write, draw, and blog without being judged, distracted, or be in fear.

~ Except when it’s not~.

When my home is threatened with the “wilds of the outside world,” I do everything I can to protect it.

I want to know, without a doubt, that my home is and always will be, my sanctuary. I want to know that I can be safe, feel protected, and know that I am loved, in my home, with no exception.

I hope your home is that for you.

  1. I like this. My husband says this all the time, that our home should be a place of peace. We are in talks about adding to our master bedroom which will give me space for an office nook, window seat (fingers crossed) and an exercise spot; a BIG addition. That will be my oasis at home.

  2. What a blessing to have “home” as a sanctuary. I agree. Sad, it is not true for so many. As I was thinking about what to write on that topic… I didn’t think of home…. should have. Nice read.

I would love to read your thoughts...
