A Sunshine of a Challenge

I recently received a challenge from Erin (Writerlious at http://www.erinbradypike.com) to enter to win her Sunshine Award Contest.  After giving it a few minutes of thought (as I face this seemingly never-ending stretch of beach and blue waters in front of me, I gave it a shot.  Lo and behold!  I was the first to submit an entry.  Here it is:

It took a lot of convincing to get her to come all this way to Cabo San Lucas with us. But as we watch her dine on the terrace overlooking the pristine beach, awash in sunshine with undulating waves racing merrily to shore, we knew it was well worth the effort. Already she looks less tense. There is laughter in her eyes again. She has developed some color just from lying by the pool in the afternoon.

She needed to leave it all behind, albeit for a week. Working on the documents, packing away his things, any and all traces of their life together, the creditors, the lawyers. Surely, they can all wait.

She did require the use of the word “sunshine” at least once, and for the piece to be more or less 100 words.  Does it measure up?

I guess it must have.  See what she gave:
