Yes, we’ve all known about it for a while. But… now that The Oprah Winfrey Show is officially over, I have a sense of emptiness. I sat and watched her last show today with such amazement, delight, happiness and yes, a bit of sorrow. To see what she has done in in the last 25 years is amazing and nothing shy of it. Incredible. I know she says the word is amazing is over used at times, but I think she deserves to be associated with it. The topics she covered, the places she’s gone, the stories she shared, is just down right amazing. I remember seeing her show back when I was in high school. Gosh, and that was ions ago.I grew up with her. She interviewed Michael Jackson!!!!
I am not home to watch the show live, so luckily my DVR has been my lifesaver and late at night, once I’m back from the gym, I relax in my bed and watch someone who totally inspires me. Knowing this day was coming up, I have been tuning in to OWN since it launched in January and thankfully, there is some amazing programming on there that will keep my Oprah fix going for a while. For those of you who haven’t checked it out, do so.
I could probably sit here for hours and write a book about this woman, whom we all seen grow and educate our nation. But, I won’t. I will simply end it with a thank you Oprah. Thank you for sharing your love, your wisdom, your knowledge and your light with all of us. Thank you for touching my life in so many ways and for bringing solid TV into a great show. You are simply beautiful. I will miss your show, but know we have not seen the last of you. We have all learned so much and you have touched so many lives. Thank you.
One quote from today’s show: “My great wish for all of you who have allowed me to honor my calling through this show is that you carry whatever you’re supposed to be doing, carry that forward and don’t waste any more time. Start embracing the life that is calling you and use your life to serve the world.”
