Oprah is sending a very special message to moms around the country that are raising children on their own: “You are enough.”
In a recent episode of her new TV series, “Oprah’s Lifeclass,” the cameras caught the Queen of Talk comforting an audience member who was in tears over feeling inadequate as a single mom.
“You’ve got to know that you are enough for your children,” said Oprah. “You are doing what so many women have done. You are living in the expectation and the dream that you had,” Oprah continued referring to the woman’s wish to raise her children in a dual-parent home.
Motivational speaker Iyanla Vanzant chimed in to offer the woman affirmations of hope.
“I give myself permission to have joy with grace, ease and elegance. That’s your new mantra,” Iyanla told her. “Thank their father for leaving you with two beautiful children.”
