Happy Birthday Liebling !!!

June 17th, Liebling’s birthday !!!

I am so lucky to be here taking a year off work, living in China and traveling Asia. The reason that this is at all possible is my lovely wife, Liebling. I am blessed to be her husband.

She is as beautiful as the first day I met her when she was just “sweet sixteen”.

Liebling works very hard at her job as a full professor and has helped many teachers here with their professional development. I know that when I share my classroom problems with her, she always has good, pertinent advice. I have to admit it, I am a guy who actually listens to his wife, she is that smart. I don’t know what I would do without her.

October 26, 1984

She brought me all over Asia and I got to watch her present her research on several occasions. A presenter that does not read aloud her PowerPoint but entertains and engages her audience while explaining the findings and relevance of her research for everyone to understand. In Thailand, two participants actually tried to start the “wave” (like they do at hockey games) !

Bangkok, Thailand, February 2012

Osaka, Japan, April 2012

Phuket, Thailand, May 2012

How Liebling manages to be a fantastic wife, mother, friend, professor and soon to be grandmère, is beyond me. What I am certain of is that this woman is amazing and she is not slowing down.

    She is an amazing woman! She was my favourite presenter at that Phuket conference, which is why I joined the wave!
    PS. Love the dresses!

    PS. I listen to her too, but more because I’m scared. 🙂
