Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale


The Little Things

by: Mary Dawson Hughes

It really is the little things
That mean the most of all…
The “let me help you with that” things
That may seem very small
The “I’ll be glad to do it” things
That make your cares much lighter,
The “laugh with me, it’s funny” things
That make your outlook brighter…

The “never mind the trouble” things,
The “yes, I understand,”
The interest and encouragement
In everything you’ve planned
It really is the little things,
The friendly word or smile,
That add such happiness to life
And make it more worth while.

  1. Sometimes we forget how important those “little things” are in our lives…until they aren’t there! Love this poem. And the photos of the person in the beautiful “big” landscape does indeed show us scale.

  2. Love the “scale” in the picture. Feel like I need to show my little one and count how many persons would measure up to the trees. (if this sentence makes any sense. . )
