I was feeling less than 💯 today. Bad Cold. I prayed. Meditated. Took every combination of lemon, ginger, honey, turmeric garlic, oregano oil known to womankind and then realized if @therock could still make it after burying his father this week, I was gonna be more than fine. pic.twitter.com/kPMZikKuxC— Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) January 26, 2020
