A Thank You Letter to Jim and Pam from "The Office"

They've taught us more about true love than any fairytale ever could.

A Thank You Letter to Jim and Pam from "The Office"

Jim and Pam have one of the most adorable love stories in television history. We were with them from the very beginning when Jim would spend hours making her laugh all day at reception to their destination wedding to the births of their adorable children. I know personally that I have a lot to thank them for:

Thank you for proving that good things come to those who wait. Jim and Pam both played the waiting game during the series. Though, most forget that Pam had to wait for Jim to realize that his relationship with Karen was going nowhere.

(I've never related to Andy more than in the photo above.)

Thank you for giving us realistic, but high expectations. You deserve much better and much more than you think. If Pam had realized that earlier, it would have saved her a lot of heartbreak and drama with Roy. (Don't settle for a Roy, ladies. You deserve your Jim Halpert, and you'll get him one day.)

Thank you for reminding us that we should settle for nothing less than our soulmates. Even Michael Scott knew that when he didn't settle for Jan, and he finally found Holly who is his soulmate. If Michael Scott can find his soulmate, then you can find yours. Trust me.

Thank you for reminding us to be bold and to be courageous. If you don't say it, then you might spend the rest of your life wondering. In the end, being bold did work out for Jim... eventually.

Thank you for showing us that long distance relationships are not hopeless or doomed to fail. They did it and it worked because they supported each other even though it was hard and they weren't 100% sure about their future. They came out of their struggles even stronger because of their determination and love for each other.

Most of all, thank you for 10 years and 9 seasons of joint effort pranks on Dwight and for allowing Michael to do stupid things (within reason).

Here's to the greatest love story in one of the greatest comedies of the 21st century. What are your favorite Jim and Pam moments, and what did they teach you about love?

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
