Imagine That! Let there be joy card



Hello,  Today my thoughts go to laughter, and joy in living. I have 2 nephews ages 6 and 7 years old. Kameron is mixed blood and Jeremy is white. They are actually 6 months apart in age. Jeremy has severe Autism. Kameron and Jeremy have lived together most of their lives. They are as closes as 2 brothers. Kameron helps with Jeremy and they play together. Kameron can get Jeremy to behave and do things when no one else can.  I was there almost a year ago to see them. They played, laughed, and rough housed with their Papaw, my brother. The rougher the play the happier they seemed. Reminded me of my 3 brothers. There was joy in living and just being children in them that day. They spent each moment enjoying life and not worrying about the time ahead. I loved watching them and seeing the spirit of these 2 little ones. They reminded me that we take each moment as it comes. Enjoy all the small things and laugh often. 

I am using a digi called "Boys on Bikes" by Imagine That! Digis by Kris. I used both Matt and Damon on my card. The digital papers are from the Imagine That! store sets called "Summer Fun"- stripes, "Sweet Pastels"- green with leaves print, "Sunshine and rain"- clouds paper.
