Spoiling a Family Happy this Christmas

I am struggling with my inner Grinch again. I sneered at jukeboxes playing Christmas songs, jeered at celebrities lip-synching with Santa at Rockefeller Plaza, and smeared my eyeliner crying when Feliz Navidad (my deceased mother's favorite Christmas song) played on the radio tonight.

We decided to sign up on the St. Vincent de Paul website to adopt a family, and spoil a family happy this Christmas. And by giving a couple kids and their parents a lovely Christmas this season, the void in my heart can continue to heal. I am tearing up thinking about making someone's holiday happier.

If you are ever interested in adopting a family, here is the website:
