Recently, when we returned home to our camp at Spring Lake, we found a note on our steps along with a box that contained a brand-new generator. The note read:

“Dear Camp Owner: Several years ago, a generator like this one here was taken from your camp. This greedy and selfish act was committed out of immaturity and disrespect. It is something I regret doing almost every day of my life. Please take this new generator as an apology, although I know the damage has already been done.”

We were shocked, to say the least, that after all these years (probably 10 at the least), someone who had wronged us would take the time and expense to make amends for what he/she had done.

This is clearly an example of how this person has learned from past mistakes and we want him/her to know that we are thankful for the replacement generator and we will make good use of it.

What a pleasant reminder that there are still people in this world who want to be good citizens and neighbors.
