The Gift of Therapy by Yalom. I love his approach to therapy and his clients.
I used to work at an agency that had a program called "Holiday Families." We provided gifts for less fortunate children, as well as Christmas trees and food for the parents. Dropping off the gifts to the families and seeing the delight of the children was unforgettable. Being able to provide joy to them and brighten up their lives (even if it was just for a day) was a life-changing experience.
