|Trailer packed with a bear for the kids we pass to wave at.|
|Me; all "bikered" up. My coworkers wouldn't recognize me!|
|Listening to a band the first night.|
We also got biker married. An organization called Christian Motorcycle Association helps out at the rally every year. And this year, 2 months shy of our 5th wedding anniversary and the week before this life altering surgery, it seemed appropriate for Pete and I to recommit ourselves to each other. We didn't renew vows, because they still stand. They never left. We recommitted ourselves to each other with the same ideas of marriage as before. It's here to stay for both of us, through good and bad.
|Pete and I before the service.|
|Pastor Carey talking about how important it is to remember why we got married in the first place and to keep those ideas in our hearts.|
|Praying over us. I cried.|
I cried I in the service, holding Pete's hand. Pastor Carey was talking about being together in all times, loving and supporting each other. It was as if he knew that I was going to be having some hard times and wanted to remind us that this is all part of it.
So here I am, committed for life and a little more ready to face this surgery.
