“Take 7 kids going out and collecting germs like they’re paid for it, then come home and generously plant them in our petri dish of a house, and the heat goes out to record temperatures under zero 🥴,” she continued. “I know many of you can sadly relate.”
“Blessings and sending healthy and warm wishes to each of you 🏼. Can’t wait to tell you how Christmas went…once I get my lungs and voice back ❤️💚 ❤️.”
