“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” ― Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!

Did you see the one tiny insignificant cloud in the sky? I almost didn’t either.

One day last week, it was a typical summer day for me, the Uber Mom. Drive to meet a friend for a trail run, drive home. Drive a pre-teen to a new cleaning job at a neighbor’s house, drive her to another neighbor’s for a dog walking job, drive home. Drive an hour to another state to pick up a kid at tennis camp, drop off kids for a sleepover several towns away, drive home. Needless to say, I had my eyes on the road for hours that Thursday.

When I finally glanced at the perfectly blue sky, I marveled at the single small cloud. While driving safely, I stole stares at the tiny cluster of minute liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere above the surface of the cities I was passing through. A cloud is a cloud, no matter how small.

All people, even tiny or seemingly insignificant ones, have infinite worth. Even when no one notices.  Even when we don’t look up at or down at them. Even if no one photographs them.

Sometimes I feel like this cloud. I’m the only one out here in this vast world proclaiming “Everyone has infinite worth.” This cloud could provide much greater shade or even rain if it was joined by other clouds. Even a bunch of tiny clouds bound together can make an impact. A small group of individuals talking about #infiniteworth can make a difference.
