Seven Wonders of the World

A group of students was asked to list
what they thought were the present
"Seven Wonders of the World."

Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most
votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not
finished her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having
trouble with her list.
The girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind
because there were so many."

The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can
help."

The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the 'Seven Wonders of the
World' are:

1.
to see

2.
to hear

3.
to touch

4.
to taste

5.
to feel

6.
to laugh

7.
and to love."

The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.
The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that we take for
granted are truly wondrous!
A gentle reminder -- that the most precious things in life
cannot be built by hand
or bought with money.
