To lift your spirits

The Seven Wonders of the World

A group of students was asked to list what they thought were the present
Seven Wonders of the 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

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one quiet student 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 feel
6. to laugh!
7. and to love."

The room was so full of silence you could have heard a pin drop. Those
things we overlook as simple and "ordinary" are truly wondrous.

A gentle reminder that the most precious things are before you: your
family, your love, your good health, your friends, and your faith.

Just a reminder to go out and live your life, be happy, love, and laugh. This is all benign and your life is waiting for you, be happy you can do these many things because some are not as fortunate as we are to have a benign condition. It may be a pain at times, but with time you will get better.
