Its all about senses

Received this via email. Its strange how we take so much for granted. Life isn't beautiful without these 5 senses. A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the 7 wonders of the world. The following received the most votes:

  1. Great Pyramids of Egypt

  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 notes, 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 make up my mind because there were so many.” The teacher replied” well tell us what you have and maybe we can help.” The girl hesitated and read”I think the 7 wonders of the world are

  1. To see

  2. To touch

  3. To hear

  4. To taste

  5. To feel

  6. To laugh

  7. 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 wonderful. A gentle reminder- that the most precious things in life cannot be built by man or bought by hand.
