Anna is a bright 9-year-old girl who is too intelligent for her age. She lives in a rural community with both her parents, where she attended elementary school.

They realized their daughter is brilliant and wanted to transfer her to another advanced school. After Anna had completed her previous grade, for her 5th grade upwards, she would have to be admitted into a school in the nearby city.

However, her mother was worried about the distance, but her father reminded her that it is for the best and for their lovely daughter to explore another culture since she is a country girl.

They agreed and found their daughter the best school and waited for the response after applying. Days went by, and they heard nothing still.

Three weeks later, the school contacted them, and they were delighted to learn that their only child got into one of the best schools in the city.

They told Anna the great news, and she was overjoyed and could not wait for her first day at school. She counted the days because she could not hold back her excitement.

Anna’s mom realized that it was the best choice they ever made for their precious little girl. Her dad reassured her that they were investing in their child’s future.

The day came for her first day at school, and she woke up super hyper ready for school and waited outside for the school bus. Once it arrived, she got in very fast.

Once they arrived at school, all students started going to their classes. Anna also made her way to her classroom after asking fellow students for directions.

When they saw how she was dressed and realized she was from a village, they began making fun of her. Anna’s teacher came to her rescue and asked everyone else to be quiet.

She introduced Anna as their newest fellow student and that she will be their classmate from that day. The teacher then told the rest of the class they should be ready for a class test and instructed them to write seven wonders of the world.

They got to it as quickly as possible, and Anna was the only one on the slow pace. When they all had submitted their paper, the teacher walked to Anna's desk and asked her what’s wrong. She then advised her to write what she knows.

Anna replied, “I was thinking that there are so many things, which 7 I can pick to write!” She wrote them down and handed her paper to the teacher.

The teacher started reading the student's papers, and most of them got the answers correct, such as the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Wall of China, among others.

The teacher was proud of her students that they all remembered what she had taught them. Finally, she read Anna's paper.

“The seven wonders are – To be able to See, To be able to Hear, To be able to Feel, To laugh, To Think, To be Kind, To Love!”

The teacher was speechless, and the whole class was also stunned. A girl from a village reminded them of what we take for granted, which is truly a wonder.

The moral of this story is that we need to value what you have, use what you have, and trust what you have. You do not necessarily need to search further for inspiration.
