Closing of a chapter

Firefighter has a new job working quasi-full time as a paramedic with a medical transport company. I am so proud of him and so thankful that he is able to use his education. But at the same time, part of me is a little sad. With the new job, means that he is leaving his old job as a movie theater manager, which is the connection to our old life, the life that brought us together. For so long the movie theater was a part of our lives. We met there, worked together, worked apart, and made friends there, friends that we still have. It's going to be so incredibly weird once that chapter in our story comes to a close. It's an important chapter, since it brought us together. One of my greatest fears has been that our connection to the theater was the only thing holding us together, like it was the only thing we had in common. But as time goes on and the more and more distance comes between us and the memories of the theater, it becomes clear that the theater was only the catalyst that brought us together, it's not WHO we are. It's where we met.
