It’s hard enough to go through a trying time, but it’s even tougher to do it with a smile painted upon your face.
It was a bombshell to her fans when Reba announced last year that she and Narvel Blackstock, her husband of 26 years, were divorcing. The two handled it in private and since then, Reba has remained pretty mum on the subject.
Recently however, she revealed it was neither an easy nor a short process, and she was hurt deeply. Nevertheless, it was her faith in God that helped her get through one of the most trying times of her life.
“God’s way is the best way and it seems to me that Narvel is happier, and I’m in a really good state of mind,” she told Parade. “It’s taken me this time to pull through why and how and there’s been a lot between us, and I believe that to forgive is easier than forget. I can never forget some of what he did, but going on with life is what’s really important and my faith helped me with that.”
“I think about what God wants me to do,” she added. “I focus on that. Faith is really important. It keeps me sane and it keeps me hopeful.”
