Profile: Meagan Jones (aka “Meagan Aaron”)

Meagan Leigh Jones. Same middle name as me, just the girl version. And now, the same last name as well.

How I met Meagan

We met online, as all good friendships begin, right? It was just before I left for Saudi. One of the first things I told her was, “Yeah, I should have met you sooner. I’m leaving for Saudi for nine and half months.”

She said, “That’s okay. We can just be long distance friends.”

And so we were.

One fact about Meagan

She has a scar on her chest near her collarbone. She scraped herself on a pool ladder when she was young. It’s one of those imperfections that makes her even more perfect.

One reason I like Meagan

She’s optimistic to a fault. When she gets mad, she can’t stay mad. When there’s a problem in the way, she looks for how to make it okay, better. When she’s sad, she cries… but when she’s not sad, she smiles and laughs and sparkles her eyes.

One memory I have of Meagan

Zoo day. It was almost a perfect day, definitely a perfect time spent together. We didn’t argue. We just loved. I can’t even write about it clearly without crying right now. I’ll keep the details between me and her.
