An Outstanding Woman at 45!

  1. I had an idea of the kind of mother I desire to be, and you truly are a mirror. It was uncanny sometimes.
  2. I enjoy how we communicated with our eyes whenever R does/says something silly or when someone acts up in public, and we laugh with our inner eyes knowing we are going to talk about this in detail later and follow it up with a laughing session.
  3. You accommodated my low and “I need to just do my job” days, and accepted that I can’t always be jovial, enthusiastic, and happy. Life, good and bad, was happening when I was not with R, and some days, the stress, pain or hurt sat on my face
  4. You created an environment that enabled me to ask for what I needed. and, you gave me what I needed, You took care of me.
  5. Your humor and wit crack me up. You can turn any phrase or word into something funny, and let’s be honest, sexual. It is a gift and strength, and you use it well. You are a sex educator, after all!
  6. For the moments we grabbed our tummies with tears running down our cheeks because we are laughing so hard, and then R rolls her eyes and thinks we are a silly bunch.
  7. For group hugs and dance parties with R and also those spontaneous hallway dance moves, We are the perfect dancers for Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, but they just don’t know it yet.
  8. Your dedication to your student! Dear AU students, if you are reading this, Stef Wood is for you.
  9. For learning alongside me that relationships of all kinds are a journey you take with people, and if you both allow yourself the liberty to shove your biases and prejudices aside while navigating the delicate nuances of an employer-employee based relationship-friendship, you grow and emerge and evolve.
  10. For my Munchkin, R!
