Ugh...I'm crying now, having just got off the phone with a super close cousin whose wedding I am going to be missing due to my compressed training/pack-out/travel schedule. I feel terrible about not being able to be there for this wonderful moment in his life. I have a huge and very close-knit family, and it is difficult to realize how many significant events of those I love will happen without me there. I love him and his fiancee so much, and wish I could change things to attend, but it is the sacrifice I have chosen. I hope he knows that I will be thinking of them from far away, and sending them love and best wishes on their special day.
