    This phrase has no direct translation so here are some more or less close variants:
    cheloveku, kotoriy mnogo dlya menya znachit - to a person who means much to me
    spasibo za to chto ty est' - thank you for your existance
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"

    Can you elaborate on what you are trying to say.

    "For all that you are"

    What are saying? "Thank you for all that you are"?

    i think this phrase implies that the person you say it to has some personal defects
    sounds to me almost like "yes, i know you are not that good and that thing you did yesterday was afwul, but i love you anyway"
    IMHO anyway
    May be a better thing to say would be "я люблю тебя зато что ты есть/спасибо за то что ты есть( ya lublu tebya za to chto tu est'/spasibo za to chto tu est') as Friendy has already suggested.
