Marie Osmond recently delivered her final Las Vegas show with her brother Donny Osmond, and now the entertainer has taken to Instagram to share an emotional tribute to the epic finale. "Well we made it over the finish line and I only limped a little," she began her post. "Last night as ‘Donny and Marie’ we sang together again but this time was for the last time. I’m not losing him, we are, after all, still brother and sister and I’ll see him at Christmas, But ‘Donny and Marie’ will be different now. Change is a good reminder that it’s the only thing in life that IS consistent. But this is one of those times when it isn’t easy to move forward without tears."
"The Flamingo was exactly the 'stay at home job' I needed and Donny and I both felt God’s hand in everything we did," Osmond continued. "During this time I literally got my life back on track. I was a single mom with 8 kids and a lot of baggage - along with their broken hearts to heal. Performing with Donny provided stability for my children by not traveling and for the first time I felt peace.
"I could be a mom and still do what I loved with someone I trusted, my brother Donny - I love you Donny! Thank you for being my big brother," she added. "I believe one of the main reasons Heavenly Father put us back to together was to have support for my children when my son Michael passed. We found strength from family and our new family of friends @FlamingoVegas."

The singer then went on to share how supportive her husband, family, and friends have been, writing, "My greatest gift was remarrying the love of my life Steve Craig. Also four of our children got married and I became a grandmother. Another huge blessing in my life was reuniting with dear friends and managment team Greg and Darla Sperry.
She also thanked her fans, exclaiming, "Then there are the fans! You have been such a blessing in my life and I have God to thank for that. But I’m not a new person as I go forward, just more refined.... like silver."
Next, Osband shared a Bible verse that is close to her heart, and elaborated on it. The verse is Psalms 66:10, and it reads, “For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.”
"I love the analogy of silver being refined," she said of the verse. "Go to my Facebook page for the analogy of this story and more or MarieOsmond.com #SundayMessage So: May tomorrow be a perfect day. May you find love and laughter along the way. May God keep you in his tender care Till he brings us together again! I love you all."
While the Donny and Marie Vegas show may be done, fans can still catch Osmond in her new role as co-host on CBS' The Talk.
