Tear Jerker

I come stumbling into the bedroom this evening in excruciating pain from a past accident that pops up as a gift that keeps on giving, and I see a large box on the bed and the wife is sleeping. I look at it and ask myself why this box is here, and why does it have Jack's name on it? He already hit me with a ThriftyThursday bomb a month or two ago and I've really wanted to return the favor. Completely confused I reluctantly open it and find this box is full of goodies. Some awesome looking CCs, a fiver of A Flores Capa Habano, a pound or more of cigarette tobacco with 2 boxes of tubes, a secret Punch tube, and a hand written note regarding the rough time I've been having lately.
Now I'm not going to joke around about hands being blown off or anything. This package and note really made me cry. On a daily basis I feel the love, the brotherhood, the respect, the family we have here, and it brightens my day even when it feels like the world is crashing down on me, but this....this....words can't explain how I feel at the moment and tears are still flowing. I'm at a loss for words. I appreciate you guys so much and I don't know what I would do without all the encouraging words and great conversations we all share so often.
From my heart Jack @curmudgeonista, thank you brother

I'm working on that. I've been trying to work even harder because attorney's aren't cheap. Thank God I have an attorney friend that's been helping me with paperwork so my costs aren't even higher. I'm brewing some coffee now, it's time I try to relax and have a smoke. You guys are truly an awesome family.

Awesome. . I have only been a member for 2 n 1/2 months and have met so many great people, done some great trades and have a few bombs coming my way. The generosity, helpfulness and kindness has been way more than I could have ever imagined. In a world that is losing all of the above and then some. I sleep better at night knowing there's still people that have the same values that I have. Wipe those tears from your eyes cause you are big part of this community.

I've been here over a year and never cease to be amazed. I've been generous to many over that year, but Jack is one that has a heart of gold.
