“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world,
and you believe you are living.

The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable:
The second symptom
(when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death):

A group of students were 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 in life cannot be bought.
P.S.The sweet picture above was taken from my husband to show me how we gonna be in 20 years time.While walking around, he saw these adorable couple, who even old with walkers was still holding each other and you can see their love beaming.One of the sweetest and most touching things.
