My Year with Oprah!!

 
My Best friend, Quencie, and I have had a blast this year.  Two exiting things that happened involved Oprah Winfrey.  We were blessed to have been chosen to attend the Best Friend's taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show on 4/11/11.  The show, which was filled with Best Friends, also featured Oprah's Best Friend, Gayle King.  During the show, Oprah gave everyone a fantastic trip to the Miraval Spa & Resort in Arizona (airfare, meals, transportation to and from the resort, and massages all paid for).  How lucky were we :-)  We also had the privilege of sitting 2 feet away from Oprah and Gayle in the 2nd row, center.  While there, many people raised their hands to ask Oprah a question.  Well, I knew that Quencie had an awesome question, so I raised my hand for her.  Right at that moment, Oprah called on me and I politely said, "My Best Friend has a Question."  The best part of this story is that, Quencie's question was so good that it was featured on Oprah.com - the only one chosen out of all of the questions asked.

Fast forward to 11/11/11 - Quencie and I were chosen to attend the taping of Oprah's Life Class with Iyanla Vazant in Los Angeles.  We sat in the front row right next to Oprah's sister, Patricia.  The show was amazing, as well as the final show of the season.  Quencie gave Oprah & Iyanla gifts that they were happy to receive.  And the best part of this story is that we were the only people that got to take a picture with Oprah.  God is indeed Good!  Look out for the next Oprah blog because the next story will be even better than the other two.
