Yesterday was a milestone birthday for one of television’s greatest figures. Oprah Winfrey turned the big 6-0 yesterday and to celebrate the occasion she penned a heartfelt letter to those who have stuck by her throughout the years.
According to US Weekly, Oprah wrote:
“Even in my darkest moments — through sexual abuse, a pregnancy at 14, lies and betrayals — I remained faithful, hopeful, and open to seeing the best in people, regardless of whether they were showing me their worst,” the Butler actress wrote. “I stayed open to believing that no matter how hard the climb, there is always a way to let in a sliver of light to illuminate the path forward.”
Of all the amazing things Oprah’s done in her life, she declared her biggest achievement is – “Never shutting my heart down”. We’d like to wish Oprah a very happy belated birthday. She’s truly a leader and an inspiration for people.
