Lately, a woman named Cheryl Norton of Blue Ash, Ohio, and her front-line nurse daughter, Kelsey Kerr, shared a heart-touching hug amid the ongoing pandemic. Thanks to a protective sheet and a mother’s will to embrace her little princess that caused the heartwarming moment plausible.
As Good Morning America reported, Norton has been maintaining a safe social distance from her front-line nurse daughter, but when her daughter stopped by her mom’s house to pick up prayer squares for her patients, this anxious momma couldn’t resist.
64-year-old Norton grabbed a sheet from her laundry basket and draped it over Kerr to give her girl a much-needed squeeze!
For the last few weeks, Norton has been social distancing from her daughter to keep them both as safe and as hearty as possible. But as the two stood apart from each other outside her place, she realized she couldn’t hold her deep feelings and pulled a hack for a tight hug.
Norton told GMA that she was reading a lot of posts on social media about healthcare workers feeling very isolated, and she didn’t want that to happen to her daughter too.
No doubt daughter Kerr didn’t need that passionate hug, said she felt really nice!
28-year-old Kerr, who lives only 15 minutes away from her mother, has been quarantining with her husband and the duo’s dog. Plus, she’s seen her mom a couple of times in the last month but has never been able to get too close, because of both Cheryl and her husband’s ages, as well as preexisting health conditions, and Kerr’s potential close proximity to patients with the virus as a nurse.
So, maybe, not intended, but perhaps Kerr hugging her aging mother was a risk of trading (or living the invisible warps) of the COVID-19, you ask?
Well, during the hug, Kerr was wearing a face mask, so the pair was still well-protected. Plus, Cheryl stated she wholly washed her hands and left the sheet in her garage for a couple of days before washing it as well. In a nutshell, both of them were safe for that split second, and that’s what matters!
