When I completed the first day of Oprah’s Live The Life You Want Tour, I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to go to sleep, and get back up again for the next day. Have you ever had one of those moments where you were so filled with anticipation to see what the next day held, that sleep was the last thing on your mind? You were just ready for the next opportunity to feel or experience that moment again. I didn’t realize then how befitting that feeling was going to turn out to be.
I’m so excited to be sitting here typing up my recap from Oprah’s “Live The Life You Want Tour”.First, I must thank God for the opportunity to attend. It was truly him that gave me access to this awesome event. Secondly, I must tell you “I got my life”. I got my life, and so much more out of this event. There is just so much that I have to share with you, and I need to let you know this is probably going to be a three-part recap.
I’ve thought about it, and I can’t squeeze the “most amazing two days of my life” into one post. I want to do this justice, and make sure I'm sharing all of the "gifts" I received this weekend. You know Oprah is known for her generosity. But, the way she “poured” into us this weekend, no amount of money will ever compare.
So, let’s begin with day 1, and the great Oprah Winfrey!
I’ve been thinking all week about love. There are so many ways that love is expressed. Love is not conventional. You can’t box love in. Love moves in ways that we don’t always understand. Love is patient, blind, and at times completely deaf to the ways of the world :). Remember God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that we could have life more abundantly. That’s love on fire for real!
This picture says it all right now! I’m going to take a little departure from our regularly scheduled program to talk about dating :). In particular, my journey on this road to love. I took a break from dating after my Dad passed to get myself together, and focus on my family. But, recently I decided to jump back in. I finally feel ready to open myself up to love, and I’m really enjoying this feeling. I just am not enjoying some of the dates and/or people, I’m meeting along the way.
Today is a monumental day in our lives. Today is the day the “Old Lady”, our mother was born :). She’s sixty-seven years young today, and that would not be enough time to tell her how much she means to us.
My mother has been a source of strength, laughter, tears, hugs, spankings, stories, meals, encouragement, aggravation, and countless memories for us :). We would be lost without her.
