“The 7 Wonders of the World”
(Author Unknown)

A group of students were asked to list the 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. 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 in front of you. Your family, your faith, your love, your good health!

Peace to each of you!
