I Blew It! And What The...?!?

So we go to my daughter's softball league end-of-year picnic. (So many people!) As we are trying to find our teams table I see a neighbor, who is also a friend. (Well, we are friendly when we see each other, but we don't call, or hang-out. You know what I mean.)
For whatever reason my neighbor felt comfortable enough to share some deep feelings.
I just wasn't prepared.
I'm surrounded by Little Leaguers, hot dogs and raffle tables and here is a woman needing to talk.
I was pulled away by my oldest and smiled at my neighbor who smiled back and said "I'll catch up with you". But she didn't. It was a busy afternoon.
I didn't see her when we left and I didn't get a hold of her last night.
She's not a close friend, however she reached out to me and I didn't respond the way I should have. What is my problem?
Well, I think this is all very interesting because I'm just finishing up the book "A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose", and I think I should go back and re-read some chapters!
I am going to take this opportunity to share in a game that I was "tagged" for by Nancy at Vellum and At First Glass.
I'm turning to my nearest book, turning to page 123, finding the fifth sentence then posting the next three sentences.
So here we go...
"A New Earth..." E. Tolle p. 123
"Cooperation is alien to the ego, except when there is a secondary motive. The ego doesn't know that the more you include others, the more smoothly things flow and the more easily things come to you. When you give little or no help to others or put obstacles in their path, the universe-in the form of people and circumstances-gives little or no help to you because you have cut yourself off from the whole."
Holy Crap!!!
This is no joke. I did NOT plan this at all!
I'm kind of freaking out right now. Hmmm...
I'm going to try and get a hold of her right now.
Would anyone else like to partake in this "tagging"? If so, let me know.
Something cool might happen.
