We envied all those in your audience that received fabulous prizes. We envied the friendship you and Gayle share. We envied Tina Turner's legs! We envied someone who had a vision and carried it out for the past 25 years. We envy the awesome power of a woman intentionally changing her life without knowing what is going to happen next.
So yes, Oprah I am going to miss you. Running on the treadmill while watching your show helped make the time go faster. Trying out the tips that Dr. Oz gave on your show helped make me healthier. Listening to poems by Mattie and Maya Angelou fed my soul. Reading your book recommendations helped broaden my literature base. Seeing your show on the Fistula problem in Africa reminded me of how lucky I am to be a woman in America and how I need to share my abundance with others.
Will you miss Oprah? Did Oprah influence you or affect your life in any way?
