I'm looking forward to spending some time this weekend with my friend Dan. He moved to Philly last year and has had the hardest 8 months I think he could have ever imagined. As far as I can tell, he's coming through his trials wonderfully. He's grown incredibly as a person and is working like crazy to keep from becoming bitter. It must be a difficult road to walk. I'm thankful for the time I have to walk that road with him this weekend.
