Overview

The past twenty five years of my life have been filled with the Oprah Winfrey show. I was a teenager when the show started. I will be married fifteen years tomorrow to my husband David and in a few short weeks, June 8th, I will celebrate my fortieth birthday. I have grown up with Oprah, literally and figuratively. I am the mother of Makenna, my twenty year old stepdaughter, Lauren Rose, fourteen, and Lucas David, seven. I listened intently to the words of love, appreciation and wisdom that Oprah said in her farewell show. I am grateful as a human being to have had the opportunity to be touched by Oprah. As a writer, I couldn’t help but jot down notes during the hour long show. It was serendipitous to hear her beliefs and her intention; it has been ingrained in my spirit.

Oprah has had over 30,000 guests on her show in a 25 year period of time, she noticed that even the bullies feel a sense of unworthiness.

Oprah has observed that as humans all of us have a common desire to be seen, heard, and understood. With the bottom line of our existence being, “is what I say, does this mean anything to you?”
