Wonders

Some times we just need a reminder. I know I do! BIG HUGS, Steph
 
 
 
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 bought by man.

    P.S.  the music player on your site really messes with my browser on two different machines.  Have you have any problems with it?

    Thanks for your comment.  So how come you don\’t get access to The Daily Show?  It\’s a must see show.  I love it!  Did you click on the link and watch the clip?  if you go to http://www.comedycentral.com  and then you can watch tons of clips from his show.  I love The Daily Show, it\’s my favorite show.  It\’s so funny, but so, so true.  I\’m thankful that you keep coming by.  I don\’t think that they\’ll ever show clips of The Daily Show on national news shows because they all hate him because he points out to the American people what these crazy idiots are actually doing in Washington.  Please keep coming by.
