Reba McEntire - Is There Life Out There?

By December 21, 2008

Follow me on:

Okay, so I can be a total sap. I admit I've cried at Hallmark commercials. And I bawled through half of Bridge to Terabithia. Apparently, I'm also a sucker for YouTube mini-movies about non-traditional students. I found Reba McEntire's YouTube story with Huey Lewis about a woman balancing work, life, and school. It's touching. It rings so true. It made me cry.

Kudos to Reba for portraying what so many of us out there struggle with every day, all to make a dream come true. If you need inspiration to keep going, watch Reba's movie, and keep your chin up.

Happy Holidays.

That is why Reba has so many fans. She know what is like to struggle and balance everything at once. Plus she one of the nicest people you would ever get to meet. I’ve never heard anyone say anything about Reba.

Thanks for making me aware of this. I like Reba, but I loooooooooooove Huey Newton.

Seriously, I will check this out. I’ve already done all the formal schooling I intend to get (went back at 50, graduated at 52), but the more people who are inspired to go back, the better.

Older students have a LOT to give.
