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:
Egypt’s Great Pyramids
Empire State Building
St. Peter’s Basilica
China’s Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noticed that one quiet student hadn’t returned 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: To see, to hear, to touch, to feel, to laugh, to live and to love.” The room became so quiet that one could have heard a pin drop.
The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and which we take for granted are truly wondrous!
Next time when we complain about things which we don’t have, let’s remember these seven wonders of our lives.
