To My Boyfriend, I’m Grateful for Us

Author: Kristin Frappier, The Dating Game

To my boyfriend,

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for the people in your life, experiences you’ve had and memories you have shared. Right now I would like to take the time to give thanks to you, my boyfriend.

I am thankful that you are the one I sat across from at dinner just about six months ago. You have a universal acceptance for my different abilities, and for me as well. You brighten my day with just the sound of your voice. You make me laugh on days I just feel like I want to cry.

When we are together there is no obstacle we can’t conquer. You hold my hand when the road gets rocky. I try until I can fly with you, and I know I have nothing to lose because I know you will catch me. Anything we share makes me feel more alive and excited for what may come next.

My heart is happy, and the world’s beauty is more vivid with you in my life. You makes me feel as though I am on top of the world — not just by the things he does but by being the person that he is. I don’t know how I got so lucky or even how a chance taken turned into a dream come true, but to say thank you for everything would never be enough!

Instead I say I love you through every storm, under every night sky and in the glow of every setting sun. I am grateful for us!

Love, Me


This Thanksgiving holiday, I urge you to share your story of gratitude of your significant other. Does he brighten your day as well? Do you feel like the two of you can overcome anything together? This is the perfect time to remind your significant other of that, and to celebrate it, together. Write him a letter, just like I did.
