Soul Food #113~
A dear young woman../friend.. sent me this story ..this week in the mail..with some other wonderful stories and poems.. some dried leaves and flowers..some special artwork and a handwritten note..~An envelope full of grace..
A group of students studied the Seven Wonders of the world. At the end of that section, the students were asked to list what 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 student, hadn't turned in his paper yet. So she asked him if he was having trouble with his list.
The guy 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 young man hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the world are:
1. To Touch,
2. To Taste,
3. To See,
4. To Hear,
He hesitated a little, and then added:
5. To Walk,
6. To Laugh,
7. To Love.
The room was so quiet you could hear a pin drop~
Have a wonderful week..
..and Thank you Ollie for your sweet face ..and D for the star studded envelope full of grace.~
