I wish I had a like button.Oprah has always been somewhat starstruck, so I thought it was fitting that these busy people came together to let her know that they thought this was a special occasion and that she was worth their effort to appear. No harm, no foul.
Yesterday, I watched the show in my very quiet home, by myself. I needed the quiet so that I could take it in without disturbance. Phone off the hook, cellphone turned off. Her words and thoughts were worthy of my full attention. I won't go to church because I don't allow people to preach to me, but I will listen to Oprah's insights and observations. I absorb what I need, and I leave what I don't need. It's like being in a class. I'm hoping that they will rerun the last show so that I can have it on my DVR. One of the things that is really with me this morning is the part about people wanting to know that you see them....that you hear them. I have to admit that I always get tickled when people repeat back to me little phrases that I've used (that make a lot of sense to me) that tell me that they were listening. I totally crack up, but it sure does feel good! I can't help but wonder where else these phrases are going!
