I recently noticed this billboard one morning on Rt. 84 in Connecticut on the way to work. It couldn't have come at a better time!! I am a teacher and I have been feeling so stressed and frankly burned out. Every morning I now look forward to that leg of the highway because I know I will see this billboard. It instantly lifts me up! Please don't take it away. I love seeing Oprah's face every morning! Thank you!!
