Deana BeersI chatted with my good friend Deana today for the first time in a long time. We traveled on a Bethany summer team in 2002, Wow has it really been ten years? That summer was amazing. It was difficult at times, challenging, emotional, and so full of good memories. I had so many things happen to me and just growing up. It is one of the closest times I've ever been to God and it was impart because of who I traveled with.
We were such a strange group but it worked. We were able to be silly with each other and still have serious times. We had this plastic giraffe for a mascot name Stephan (because of the dinosaur in the movie Clifford) and took pictures with it every where. We saw the Bad Lands, Mt. Rushmore, and lots of highways. I had my first ever July 4th which was strange cause I was the only Canadian on the team. Through it all Deana was my girl (which was good since the rest of the team was boys). We did these crazy work outs every night and cried to each other when our campers were mean. It was great.
Deana is a good friend. It was so good talking with her today even if it was only through messages. When post-college drift happens there are relationships that don't really end you're just not in contact any more. Life just happens. I didn't realize how much I missed her till today. Also appreciate the wisdom and questions she gave me about a situation I am working through. She was very helpful. It was good. This is why I am very thankful for her. Yay for Deana! I wish I could give her a hug but she's on the others side of the world.
