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:
While gathering up the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished writing her paper.
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 Word are:
A gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man.
Don’t be to busy to cherish and enjoy these Wonderful Treasures!
Thank you Brighid for the timely reminder.
I think number three is my favourite.
Very true that our senses are also wondrous things. I would also suggest some of the less visible things, like the internet, word processing, heart surgery or calculators.
I would go with the internet and modern heart surgery, but would add cataract and hip surgery, both of which have made a great difference to my life.
I like it. There a lot of wonders in this modern world, but we also tend to take the best for granted. 😉
Mike, we are surrounded by the best, perhaps that is why we take them for granted.
See ~ Hear ~ Taste ~ Touch/Feel ~ Smell ~ Laugh ~ Love
I thought it was worth sharing.
We take those 7 too much for granted, thanks for the reminder.
We all need a reminder now and again.
The biggest wonder of the world is that any of us came about at all. Now all I wish for, Grannymar, are seven lives. In the meantime I thank my parents on the red carpet of my life that they were overcome when they were. Otherwise I wouldn’t be here to annoy everyone. Insert smiley.
One life is more than enough for me, I’m not greedy!
Well, I like the human touch, but have seen 3 of the man made wonders — the Taj Mahal, the Empire State Building, and St. Peter’s Basilica.
Lucky you, Gigi. I do think you mean the Colosseum in Rome and not St. Peter’s Basilica.
I agree with the girl. Love is the only thing that matters!
I like all the seven suggestions on her list.
