Marie Osmond says she is reconnecting with her family as they deal with the COVID-19 crisis together. The 60-year-old singer and talk show host posted a sweet video to Instagram that shows her sharing a family game night with her young grandchildren.
In the video, Marie is dressed casually in a flannel shirt and sweatpants as she sits on the floor with two of her grandkids. Classic kiddie games, including Hi Ho Cherry-O! and Guess Who?, are strewn on the floor, but Marie and her granddaughter are playing Operation. As the Osmond sister tries to take a "butterfly heart" from the body of iconic board game star Cavity Sam, the buzzing from her failed mission tickles her granddaughter's feet and they burst into laughter.
In the caption to the post, Marie wrote that her family will not give in to fear, but that they will practice social distancing. The Donny & Marie star added that she hopes families will find restored faith find ways to make staying at home "count for something good."
The "Paper Roses" singer reminded her fans to use this time at home to reconnect with family. In addition to her too-cute game night with her granddaughter, Marie noted that her sons Matt, 20, and Brandon, 23, reconnected by playing video games together instead of with their friends. She also urged fans to reach out to those in need during this trying time by helping them with food or with their children. Marie also asked fans to use social media for good.
"Let's not be afraid, instead let's have fun and use this time to reconnect with those we love," she wrote, after sharing a passage from Scripture.
