Days of Being: August 12

God was nudging me to give more attention to the present moment. Notice. Open your eyes. Open your eyes to the world around you and the people around you. Open your eyes to the stories and hopes and pain right in front of you.

Days of Being is a micro-memoir project exploring memories and moments from every day of the year. Multiple years from my life are represented within the project celebrating what Madeleine L’Engle once said: “I am still every age that I have been.” Today’s micro-memoir is from one of my August 12s.
