Hi Aleta,

I hope you're well. 

I've been reflecting on the past year and on the events and people that made a significant difference in my life. Your name was really high up on the list and in very bold letters :)

I just wanted to thank you for all that you've done for me in the past year and for the positive impact you had on my life, and certainly many others. 

I know that when I'm fortunate enough to have a positive impact on someone's life and find out about it, while it's very nice to hear, it doesn't necessarily make me feel any better about myself. I know people that help the whole world but they're unhappy and feel empty inside.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you a year where you are overwhelmed with at least as much blessings as the the blessings you bring to others. 

I feel very optimistic about the upcoming year!
