Dear Universe (Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011)

I have so much to be grateful for. You've really outdone yourself this time!

Thank-you for keeping me employed. It's very important to me that I continue to have a steady income. May 2011 see it continue.

Thank-you for giving me the time and space I need to continue to write. I know you know how important writing has become to me, and I SO appreciate being able to do it. May 2011 see me writing happily on!

Thank-you for all the opportunities you've thrown my way. While I know that I won't see the results of seizing the opportunities right away, I am still grateful for the chance to prove myself. May I have many more such opportunities in 2011.

Thank-you so, so much for my friends and my family. They have been my strength, my cheering squad, my courage all of last year. I don't think I would have gotten very far without them. Send them my love and bless them with every abundance you can throughout the coming year. Better, more deserving people cannot be found anywhere.

Thank-you for all my readers, even the silent ones, whose goodwill has kept me afloat even though I don't and can't know from where the goodwill came. Let them know I appreciate it all the same, and send some of the same their way. They deserve it.

Thank-you for everything you've done for me in 2010. It was the most fun I've ever had, even in the quite moments. May the fun continue and increase in 2011.

Thank-you for the promise of 2011, and all that I can achieve if I put my mind to it. Thank-you for hope and courage and determination. May they continue to serve me into 2011, and for the rest of my life.

Thank-you for all the blessings you have bestowed upon me, and all the blessings that are still to come.

May 2011 see everyone I know and love touched with grace and good fortune. I raise my glass to you all.

Happy New Year!

That brought a tear to my eye! So beautiful. I hope it all comes true.

(and, well, delete this part of the comment, but did you mean "quiet moments", not "quite moments"?)

Ahem... yes, I meant quiet moments. Good lord, I even read through the post again to make sure.

This is why I hate editing!
