7 wonders

A college class was asked to write down what they considered to be 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 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  make up my mind because there are so many"

The teacher said : "Well, tell us what you have and maybe we can help"

The girl hesitated, the read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are :

1. to touch
2. to taste
3. to see
4. to hear
She hesitated, 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 and important things are in front of you. Your family, your faith, your love,  your good health and your friends.

Be ordinary, be yourself because you yourself are truly wondrous.
