Just was reading an essay on the word felicity and, well, your post would have made a fitting illustration.

Tamara, we prayed for a "felicitous" time with family and God graciously answered those prayers. Celebrations with extended family can be a complicated affair. It always takes work to keep things healthy and it's rarely straightforward. But the work is always equally worth it.

Shannon, it helps to have a good camera and a fancy lens. :)
