The end of.....

When I first start rolling this blog through my mind, I immediately had a friends moment. The one where Monica and Chandler are telling Rachel and Joey that they're moving in together. Rachel doesn't cry and Monica says, "It's the end of an ERA!" Rachel doesn't think that the time they've lived together can be classified as an era. Later on in the episode, Joey says, "It's the end of an ERA!" An 'era' is defined as a period of time marked by distinctive character, events, etc.; or the period of time to which anything belongs or is to be assigned. I thought I would describe the end of "my era" that was described in yesterdays blog.

I am a monitor in a chat room on a Christian dating site. I've been on this site for five years, four of which I've been a monitor. I have made a lot of friends there (not just guys), some I know that I will have for life. We have quite the eclectic group when we're all together, yet we know that God put us together for a reason... we just haven't figured out that reason yet. :)

Friday night I was discussing with one of my fellow monitors and close friends about how I just wasn't feeling it... in fact, when I was participating in chat, I was almost bored. I had been praying about it and I made the decision right then there, that this chapter of my life was done. It was time to move on. So, I emailed the guy who runs the site and asked hm how many extra days I had other than what he gives us each month. I'm sure when he reads it tomorrow morning, he's going to be like "huh?".

Thus... the end of my era. I think I can call it an era because this place has been such a huge part of my life. Like I said, I've met some of my best friends there, been to a lot of get-togethers with them, etc., etc. It may not seem like a big thing, but it really is closing a chapter in part of my life.

Good for you for moving on...I thought you were going to say that you are going to live alone! :)

Sometimes you just know it's coming and you can feel it. I like when that happens. Maybe something really wonderful is coming your way.

It is a big deal, and I'm sure the rooms will miss you but I'm sure you're right that it's time to move on. Well done and every blessing.
