"Which are the real 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 was some disagreement, the
following got 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 quiet student hadn't turned in 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 touch
2. to taste
3. to see
4. to hear
She hesitated a little, and then added
5. to feel
6. to laugh!
7. and to love

The room was so full of silence you could have
heard a pin drop. Those things we overlook as
simple and "ordinary" are truly wondrous.

A gentle reminder that the most precious things are
before you: your family, your faith, your love, your
good health and your friends.
