Saying goodbye to Oprah

Oprah's very last show was yesterday.
25 years that show has been on, and yesterday it ended. And if I am being honest, I was/am a little sad.
I remember watching that show from the very beginning.


When I was in grade school, when the final bell rang I would run home and get a cup of tea ready, popcorn and watch Oprah. That woman has taught me so much.
Some people might laugh, or roll your eyes when I talk about how much I admire her, but really, I could care less. She is am amazing woman! She has done so much for people, it is staggering.


I grew up (for the better part of my life) in daycare, or with babysitters. My mom says I was in child care from the age of 6 months.
When I was old enough to be semi responsible, I was a latch key kid. And I have to say, there are a heck of a lot worse things I could have been doing then watching Oprah. (I was actually doing those things too, just after the show was over)


I feel watching Oprah for all those years was like therapy. For all the problems I have, and am still dealing with, I could stand to have her help for another 15 years or so.




For me one of the highlights was when Beyonce preformed this song.





I loved the whole thing, and am going to re-watch her last show with all her words of wisdom that I PVR'd over and over. 


When I grow up I want to be like Oprah. 


Today:


I am grateful for yet another new bra. 


I am grateful for all the rain, my lawn really needs it. 


I am grateful for telephones, I really love chatting with my friends whenever I want.
