    Yes, that place or those places where we can go and be in the presence of someone who respects our humanness, our frailties, our overall human makeup and hears our story without judgement – that place where we are given permission to “be”, that person who just sits with us – sometimes in silence – taking in our pain or troubles without comment – just going on the journey with us so we are not alone…..that most definitely is sacred and holy. I believe if we each had someone/someplace like that in our lives, the world would be a more secure and less troubled place.
