Greatest gifts of Life

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 wondrous! 
A gentle reminder — that the most precious things
in life cannot be built by hand or or brought by man.
