He does it for his family!
My husband just started driving otr hazmat tankers about two months ago, and my life has totally changed.
I have taken on both being a long distance wife as well as an almost single mom. The days he's home are the best days of the month. No matter what we are doing I dress as nice as possible.
I freeze home cooked meals for days before he gets home so he has good food on the road.
We talk on the phone every day, at least twice a day. It hurts not having him here but I know he does it so our daughter can be raised by me not some daycare. She is the greatest gift he could ever give me. And for that there is nothing I wouldn't do for him.
Every meal is made with love, every little thing is done to try to make it easier on him while he's away.
And every day I tell our daughter just how very much her daddy loves us.
