Last week my 10-year-old daughter was shopping with her grandparents at Walmart in Groton. She picked out a very special Christmas gift for me and counted out her money to the cashier. After she checked out, a man in line handed her $10 to share with her little brother.

She could not believe that a stranger would do something so nice for her. This was a great thing that he did. He showed my children that joy comes from a stranger's kindness and the true magic of the holiday season. The kids decided to pay it forward by surprising others with random acts of kindness this weekend.

We encourage others to join in the fun. Happy holidays from our family to yours.

No, teens will be teens. A ban would just encourage them more.

What's grinding? The Charleston is the last dance I learned.
