oprah winfrey - my inspiration...

I know... I know ... I've said this before ... I don't get to watch much TV here.  Now that's certainly not the end of the world, but it sure is nice when I do get to see something 'guilt free'!!!  I do manage to see 60 minutes every Sunday and a bit of news but that's about my limit these days.

the Lovely Oprah Winfrey ...

Back when I was having our children, I had 5 days each time in a private hospital AFTER the event, so inbetween breastfeeding and getting to know our next little darling, I had my own room, bed, prepared meal and best of all my own TV!  Wow!!  Those were the days...


... i REMEMBER this one!!! I found out how to fold a fitted sheet!!!

So, while I was in hospital I made a point of watching the Oprah show every day.  I love that woman's  enthusiasm, positive energy and the sheer inspiration she exudes.  I think it's her honest, genuine, down to earth attitude that makes her so appealing to people all over the world, not to mention the sheer hard work she's done to get her where she is - not luck.    I'm so in awe of anyone who can talk about their lives in front of so many people and her's has been an extremely difficult one, but she's conquered so many things and is a truly wonderful role model.    Her generosity and kindness is something I've never seen before in a public celebrity - she seems to relish in the role of  helping people and that kind of spirit is wonderfully infectious.

 I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen her shows for ages and am guessing she may have even retired from it all by now???  I'm so out of the loop...  My favourite shows??? hmmm.... wow - so many - definitely any Martha Stewart guest appearances, interior decorators and definitely the interviews with people who'd become successful in their own right. 


Thanks for all your fab shows Oprah and wonderful positive quotes - I read them often.
