Something to consider daily

A group of students were 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

wonderous!



A gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be built by

hand or bought by man.
