The other day, I saw a commercial on television about children wanting “one more day” of vacation. It was a commercial advertising the benefits of having a particular credit card, but its message from the children was what really struck me: that many of us have yearly paid vacations, and, yet for whatever reason, we, as parents, fail to take the full vacation.
We usually come home a day or two early. The children’s take on this is why would we do that? So they question their parents – and plead with them to take one more day! That got me thinking – why don’t we take that extra day to spend our vacation with our families?
