Each day comes bearing its own gifts

A group of students were asked by their teacher to list what they thought were the current 'Seven Wonders of the World.' There was some discussion amongst the students before they each submitted their lists and 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

However, after counting all the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not handed in her list. So she asked the student if she was having trouble finalising it. The student replied, 'Yes, a little, I can't quite make up my mind because there were so many to choose from.'

The teacher said, 'Well, tell us what you have as your first seven and maybe we can help you to decide on your final list of 7.'  The girl hesitated, then said . . . '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 finally - To love
