Little Things

I worked this morning and am spending the afternoon taking practice exams for tomorrow's (?) ham exam. As I do so, I am listening to songs by Lamb. I finally looked up the words to "Little Things" and now I like the song more than ever before. I love how their lyrics are so sincere, true and real. And the dark tone behind this song makes the words sink in even more.

'little things' by Lamb

there's so many things that we miss in our everyday lives
we're so busy hustling bustling chasing faraway dreams
we forget the little things
like blue skies, green eyes and our babies growing
like rainbows, fresh snow and the smell of summer
we forget to live

give us eyes like children so we live each day as our first
we're so sure we know so much that we forget to listen
then we want the fickle things
like cheap thrills, fast pills and constant consumption
like CDs, TVs and cars that speak our name
we forget to live

there's so many things that we miss in our everyday lives
we're so busy hustling bustling chasing faraway dreams
we forget the little things
like blue skies, green eyes and our babies growing
like rainbows, fresh snow and the smell of summer
we forget to live

Ham test set

Finally, the date for my ham radio exam is set and looking definite. I'll be taking it in Berwick next Wednesday at 6pm. I am really grateful because the Volunteer Examiners have scheduled this exam time just for me. They've really been very helpful and dedicated and I am thankful!

Between now and then, there is a lot to keep the calendar full. Tomorrow are the usual two Bible studies, Thursday we bring my brother home from college and I have a conference call, Friday we may be going to Gettysburg, and Monday is Memorial Day picnic time. Our team will also be presenting our demo sometime next week, so we are busy preparing that. Then, next Friday, we will move my brother into NY state for the summer and I will be moving 3 days later. Whew, it's going to be wild!
