Forgo my hope of climbing a peak in favor of sticking together as family.
While I'd really wanted to hike to a certain peak significant to members of my extended family, my husband and children weren't game. Rather than make an issue of it, or urge them to suffer through it, or, let's just say it, whine, I opted to stick with family.
Absolutely. Perhaps there'll be another time to climb the peak. Perhaps the other family members will be interested then. Even if not, I can't replace the memories we made together.
