Great Tips for Great Kids
# 1 Slo-Mo
Way too often we rush through the day but have you ever considered the way of a child? They walk along and everything is fascinating to them. They want to look at the bugs, cars, butterflies and everything else on their journey. Slow down and look at the world through their eyes. Yep it can be frustrating if you are trying to get them to school but WHEN you can, walk at the child’s pace and see the world as they see it. When you do this it will give you a totally new perspective on life.
Seven Wonders of the World.
I don’t know where this story originated from, but I really love it.
A teacher asked a group of students to list what they thought were the “Seven Wonders of the World”. Though there was some disagreements, the following received the most votes:
The Pryamids of Egypt
The Taj Mahal
The Grand Canyon
Empire State building
St. Peter’s Basilica
The Great Wall of China
While gathering the votes, the teacher noticed that one student hadn’t handed in her paper so she asked her if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied “Yes a little I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there are so many”. The teacher asked her to show what she had written and then maybe she could help her to decide. The student handed her paper to the teacher, and this is what she had written;
The Seven Wonders of the World are…
To See, to Hear, to Touch, to Taste, to Feel, to Laugh and to Love.
The teacher read the list to a stunned, quiet class.
What would you have put down as the Seven Wonders of the World?
No matter how grand things are they pale in comparison to the Real Seven Wonders of the World as listed by this girl. These truly are the most wondrous things we can have and see in our lives. If you have these Seven Wonders then you can fully and truly appreciate the other “Wonders of the World”.
