Good Samaritan Makes Up for Stolen Bikes

Here is a story that will remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas. It comes from

"When the bikes Dennis and Tamie Leporin bought themselves for Christmas to ride with their young son disappeared from their front lawn, the couple posted a sign to let the thieves know their disappointment.

"I hope U crooks enjoy our bikes U stole; Merry X-Mas," the sign read.

The next evening the couple heard a knock at their door and found an envelope with $200 inside. A pickup truck was driving away.

"Inside was a note that read, 'For every crook, there are 1,000 good people'," Dennis Leporin told the Pensacola News Journal.

"I thought it was awesome. We moved here from St. Louis, and folks just don't do that in St. Louis," he said.

Tamie Leporin said she and her husband were concentrating so much on the theft that they forgot about the true meaning of Christmas, until they were reminded by the kindness of strangers.

"We just wish there was some way we could thank them," she said."

I love his statement that for every crook, there are 1,000 good people. How true that statement is. It's one reason I started this blog. If you watch the news, you'd think that everything going on these days is negative, but if you really look around, you'll find positive things happening all around us.

Good luck today and make it a great one!
