Green Smiley Monday

I am smiling because two of Lisa's very good friends are on their way to Calgary for a visit.  I love to hang out with them.
Another smile because we spent the weekend with our son and DIL.  We went to a great breakfast restaurant yesterday with Tiina's parents.  We had a lovely visit. 
After breakfast we spent some time with my sister-in-law and her husband.  She is battling ovarian cancer with metastases.  She has been through chemo a couple of times and it has not really made a difference.  Despite everything she remains optimistic but realistic.  We had a nice visit but it tired her out.  I gave her a pendant from Santiago and a scallop shell from Finisterre (the end of the world).  Those who carry a scallop shell on their packs on the Camino de Santiago are recognized as pilgrims. 
So for now I am smiling.
I wish all a great week!

What a joy to read your update. It makes me smile!!

I\'m sorry about you SIL. My former bout with advanced stage colon cancer allows me to feel some of the pain of such an ordeal.
