I wouldn’t have been a good mum – Oprah Winfrey

The 63-year-old, who has been with her partner, Stedman Graham, since 1986, told Good Housekeeping that she never wanted to be a mom because she doesn’t have the patience to parent.
“When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them, because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children,” she said.
“Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age two, 10 or 20. If the is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.
For me it was perfect, because I didn’t want . I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies. I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage! But this is so rewarding.”
Despite this, Oprah founded a boarding school for girls in 2007, which she is dedicated to providing for.

    This line really caught my attention “If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works” Love is all that matters.
