"Breakfast at Sally's"
I'm currently reading this wonderful story of "One homeless man's inspirational journey". Richard LeMieux was a successful "man who had everything", who saw his fortune change almost overnight.
His dog (and best friend) "Willow" saved his life, he meets some amazing characters, is treated for depression and is able to persevere. It all goes to make a fascinating insight to how this, the richest country on earth, treat extreme poverty, which exists on all our doorsteps.
It's a "must read" book - it may just help you a little to appreciate what you have - I know it has helped me do just that.
