The family " one for all and all for one "
Recently we made another family trip. Have to say that I've made it a tradition.
So much for my wife than for me, the family holidays have marked our childhood. Once the dads were generally less involved with children every day, which, in my case, 2 weeks at Hampton Beach that my father is allowed to live with his family were to me unique!
Also see this little video "Humoristico-Nostalgic" that I realized, a few years ago, adapting the words to the hit single "Rockcollection" of the French Laurent Voulzy my memories of youth, quebec.
This clip highlights the happiness of summer holidays in family.
These days, many families travel at different times of the year, cherishing the moments spent together.
Obviously, I know that I am intense with the happiness of "my cocoon family" because it is true that Delphine and Antoine (my children) are now aged 29 and 25 years, and that they are in a couple each of their sides. But to believe that we have passed this value...although a friend has said, and rightly so; " as long as the holiday will be paid for by daddy, they would be crazy not to take advantage of it ". To which I retorted, " well... at least I know they are not crazy... ". Always is it that this time we opted for Greece with a backpack, all four, such as four youth... I'll tell you not just the trip, but I will tell you that through the wonderful landscapes of the islands we have visited,
the beautiful meetings with local residents, I will keep the most in mind, it is the souvenir of a journey to the heart of our own family unit, yet often visited, but never with the same light, the same complexity, the same intensity.
Our family, like the rest of the world is changing, our children-adults are increasingly heads of their own for their own choices, and are increasingly aware of what are their needs and their limits. This trip it was good times and moments less funny. But this recent journey it is above all the illustration of a group, which, like most faithful friends, all agree to respect the other, to help, to support, to love. In the words of Alexandre Dumas " all for one and one for all ". For me, my family is my greatest wealth !
Will come a time where we can no longer do this type of trip, just the four of us, but I dare to believe that, just as my parents have passed on, that the tradition of a family vacation will make its way through the generations and that one day granddad Alain will monitor his grandchildren on the beach...
