A Beautiful Vacation Truce

Far away from school and friends, the bickering slowly disappears. The name calling, the alliance shifting, and the hair pulling all goes away. Surrounded by sand and sea, my children rediscover each other. For just a few days, they go from foe to friend.

Watching them laugh and play is better than the most gorgeous sunset.

Until we walk up those steps for the last time and head home, back to reality, far away from this beautiful vacation truce.
