the chocolate, soda, & jaxy love cure.

Gosh guys, it's sure been a tough week.
    We found out today that our sweet next door neighbor Chuck, is completely unable to get out of bed. He doesn't have much longer here in this crazy beautiful world, but he'll be heading somewhere that is just plain beautiful. We will all dearly miss him, but he will no longer be suffering... that's what matters most. Heaven will be surely be more heavenly w/ Chuck there, & I'm sure he can liven the place up a bit! Lol)
 Greg, & Jaxy went over to visit Chuckles (Chuck) last night. 
When they got back home, Greg was (trying) his best
 to explain to Jax that Mr Chuck is very sick, & will be going to heaven to see Jesus soon.
Jaxy in return said... "Chuck sick?"... "Chuck need food!"
My precious lil monkey hears EVERYTHING. 
Greg & I were just talking a few nights ago that Chuck needed to start eating more.... really eating at all.
Later that night Jaxy was sweetly concerned about him. 
As Jax was eating his dinner, he said,
 "Chuck need my food?" 
I said "Aww buddy, you want to give Mr Chuck your food...?" 
He said, "No mommy.... "chocolate & soada!"
I LOVE my sweet sweet little Jax more & more every single day.
Jax & mommy needed to get out of the house, 
so we went on one of our walks. 
My little man can always make me smile, 
even on a day like yesterday.

These photos are just glorious - I love the mood in them all. It's nearly impossible to choose some favourites but I particularly like your 3rd and 7th shot. Sorry that your neighbour is so ill.

Jax is just so darn sweet! It's wonderful that he can have compassion at such a young age! These pictures are fabulous! They keep getting better and better! I'm sorry about your neighbor Chuck, but he will definitely be going to a better place where he doesn't have to suffer anymore.
