A call from Uganda has me awake in the middle of the night – international work means there is not a regular 9-5 schedule, but it is something I’ve gotten used to in the last year and I’m pretty good rolling with it now.

At first I wasn’t used to trying to talk on a phone, hone my hearing carefully, understand through crackly airwaves, pick through various accents, all while rubbing the sleep from my eyes as I try to wake up.

But what I’ve learned is that to be present doesn’t require that we are all ‘set to go’, it just requires us to be present.

And being present does a work all its own.
