No Matter How Small

Today my mom and I took the kids Downtown (yes, you must say it with a capital letter) to Children's Theater. We also walked around to see the decorations, the big train display, and of course we had lunch Downtown.

The play was Seussical Jr. It was cute and Polly really enjoyed it. Tigger sat on my mom's lap the whole time, so that was $7 wasted, but I digress. Sweet Pea wiggled from my lap to The Bear's lap (aka my brother), nursed once, and enjoyed a rousing game of "Throw the pacifier on the floor and watch who gets it".

In the midst of all the fun and frivolity one thing really touched me. Horton the Elephant is a major character in Seussical (You have read Horton Hatches the Egg and Horton Hears a Who, haven't you?) He sings several songs, some silly and some sweet but one line, which is straight from the books, resonated with me today:

"A person's a person, no matter how small."

Dr. Seuss got it right. Oh that we would all take those words to heart! A person's a person, no matter how small!
