Here’s a great story …


A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the Seven Wonders of the World. Though there were some disagreements among them, the following received the most votes:

1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids

2. Taj Mahal, India

3. Grand Canyon, Arizona

4. Panama Canal

5. Empire State Building, New York

6. St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome

7. China’s Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noticed that one student had not finished her list. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble.

“Yes, a little,” the girl replied. “I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there were so many.”

“Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help,” the teacher said.

The girl hesitated, then read to the class her Seven Wonders of the World:

1. To see

2. To hear

3. To touch

4. To taste

5. To feel

6. To laugh

and …

7. To love

The things we overlook as simple and ordinary are truly wondrous. We need a gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be bought or created but are ours to begin with.
