umm feeling the need to lighten the mood after what has happened the in Manchester 2 nights ago and came across this little story ( parable ) think it is pretty well known but always think u get something new even if u have heard it countless times before !!!
A teacher asked her students to write down the wonders of the world which they did and came up with
A The pyramids B Taj Mahal C Grand Canyon 4 Panama canal 5 Empire state building 6 St Peters Rome and the Great wall of china not sure if their was discussions what should come first but still
One student seemed to be having a bit of trouble so was asked if was having any problems thinking of them ” well yer their is just to many to think of but got
A touch B taste C see D hear E feel F laugh and last one love yer bit sort of to good to be true but something in it all the first wonders listed You are quite lucky to have seen them all never mind one of the but the majority of people have experienced something of the second list thinking of a lady who used to come to come to a shared reading grp does not come any more due to mobility probs but was more or less blind seemed to have an acute hearing and was so able to join in At times it is very difficult to see anything good in the world we live but sometimes the wonder of life can be right in front of us but can’t see the woods for the trees !!
went to the bed last night thinking alot of the opening lines of invictus Out of the night that covers me black as the night from pole to pole and stopped and thought of Manchester and hopefully their night is very black at the moment but one day the light will shine going to cheer on man u in the ufea cup now !!
