Bill was working for a company, PCL Graphics and had secured a contract with some of the car racing tracks around Ontario. He had invited us to attend a race event at Cayuga on the long weekend in July. Even though it could be the first weekend camping event, I declined the invitation so Rick asked his friend Paul, our long-time neighbour to go with him. They left on Friday night and I stayed at the house alone.

On Saturday morning, I went into town to visit my mother and find an Angelspeake book. While the bookstore didn't have any Angelspeake books, they did have several other books, some on spirituality. One book in particular seemed to jump off the shelf at me. I remembered buying it before for Rachel, Jay's girlfriend, for her birthday in May. It actually almost fell off the shelf then, when I bought it for Rachel. The book, "You Own the Power" by Rosemary Altea just seemed to draw me to it, so I bought it again only this time for me. When I returned home, I went on the Internet to see what I could learn about her.

Somehow I ended up at The Learning Annex's website. I found out that Ms. Altea would be in Toronto on July 31st for an event and I just felt I was intended to go to it. I also discovered that Doreen Virtue, a well-known angel expert would be in Toronto on August 13th for another event that was also beckoning me. When Rick returned from his boy's weekend, I asked him if he would like to attend these events with me and he told me to go ahead and register us for them, which I did. I am so lucky to have such a supportive husband!

Rick and Paul had a great time at the races. Part of me was jealous that the first real camping experience in our new "house" was done without me but at the same time I was happy that Rick had enjoyed it with his son and a good friend. I missed out on that first-time camping trip but I knew that we had many more opportunities coming. Besides, I had discovered Rosemary Altea!
