Appreciate the Wondrous

This came across an email list I'm on and I wanted to pass it on. Maybe you've seen it before, but I hadn't.

The 7 Wonders of the World...

A group of Geography students studied the Seven Wonders of the World. At the end of that section, the students were asked to list that they considered to be Seven Wonders of the Modern 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's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall

Gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, 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 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 touch
2. to taste
3. to see
4. to hear

She hesitated a little, and then added:
5. to run
6. to laugh
7. and to love

May you be reminded today of those things which are truly wondrous.
