Chicken-Fried News: Grandma’s guidance 

CFN_REBA.jpg

Every morning, a particularly existential Oklahoman wakes up somewhere in the state, looks out the window and thinks, “How in the world is Reba McEntire 61 years old and a grandmother?”

It can be a hard fact to grasp, but that doesn’t make it any less true. The McAlester-born country music diva defies natural aging. Maybe that happens naturally for all redheads.

Whatever the case may be, McEntire has been reflecting on her motherly and grandmotherly influences. She recently told CountryLiving.com that the most important lesson her grandmother (also named Reba) taught her was “the love of Jesus.”

“To me, that’s the most important thing she could’ve ever taught me,” she said.

It sounds like Reba’s grandmother was a sweet lady. In terms of life lessons that grandparents must teach, there are certainly worse options, like how to fall asleep at a high school graduation or how to suggest to the bank teller that she date her grandson even though he’s standing just 2 feet away.

We appreciate all grandparents! Keep dropping those crumbs of wisdom and we’ll keep lapping them up like the eager pups we are.
