A little smile in every tile ...

I think I got it this time. I had a lovely time with this tile. I especially liked the part of the Diva's post about her son's smile. Sooooo powerful and his smile is beautiful and such an amazing story of overcoming the odds. Smiles have always been a huge part of my life and am so happy that they are a part of his too.

I run. And I know how fortunate I am to be able to do this. So I have this thing that I say to myself, "a little smile in every mile". That little smile usually turns into a bigger one, until sometimes I am outright laughing on the side of the road. I don't know ... I think it is therapeutic. 
Lately I feel the same way about Zentangle. How lucky I feel to be able to sit down and create. I often find myself at the end of a tile looking and admiring it and giving it a little smile. So in a way I am putting "a little smile in every tile".
Enjoy the weekend!



  1. Your tile is beautiful!!! And by reading about smiling after finishing a tile, I know that's what I'm doing too.

  2. Wonderful post (and love your tile also).

  3. Love the ATC frame on your tile!
    Your story is so very recognizable! By the way: after the smile, I whistle ;-) Tangling really makes me happy!!

  4. A little smile goes a long way! You made me smile while looking at your tile!
