Well, today is May 25th and for a lot of us it is the day we have all been dreading.  Today is the day in which the Oprah Winfrey Show will be airing it's finale episode.  I realize that Ms. Winfrey is not going anywherre, but I'm still a little heartbroken at the lost of a show that was very much a staple in my life.  I've been racking my mind trying to think of my favorite 'Oprah' moments.  I think more than anything I have enjoyed the lessons she's taught and the blueprint she's created. 
Here are some of my favorite 'Oprah' memories:
- 'God can dream a bigger dream for you than you can ever dream for yourself'  This is one of my all-time favorite Oprah quotes because it is so true and it's something I've model my life after.  God can dream a bigger dream for you and I am a living testment of this.
- 'If someone tells you who they are, believe them.'  I can remember hearing Dr. Maya Angelou saying these words just as clear as day.
- The Brown eye/Blue eye exercise in prejudice -  Such a powerful show that forced people who are normally not discriminated against to see what it feels like to be on the other side.  This was a brilliant show.
The Michael Jackson interview
- President Obama and Michelle Obama
- Iylana Vanzant
- 'You get a car, you get a car...'
- 'Wildest Dreams...' This had to be my favorite season of the show.
- Mattie Stepanek - A little angel.
- Dr. Robin Smith
- The Book Club
- The Angel Network - She taught me the power of one person when it came to making a difference through philanthrophy and charity.
- Dr. Laura Bermann
- Her adventures with Gayle.
- The dying mother who left the videos for her daughter.
- The 'Color Purple' reunion
- Her 50th birthday party when she came out to 50 Cent
I could probably go on and on about my favorite memories from the show but I would love to hear about yours.
