I held a Jewel in my fingers

Emily Dickinson

I thought this was pretty poignant. How often do we let great things like jewels slip through our fingers because we take what we have for granted. What do we miss out on being happy just to be where we are when we should change to fit a better circumstance-like she should've done somethign with teh gem, not went on with her nap like she had planned before finding the gem. The people we let get away without saying what we really mean..the chances we let slip us by.
