how hard my trucker has to work to make ends meet.....
(delaware ohio delaware county)
I have been married for 22 yrs to a trucker he is a blessing to our family works very hard and is dedicated to the profession that is so often taken for granted .
Our life is a struggle one of which is being lonely and missing my husband we have three daughters who have been raised with dad in the truck. he is a great man and a great dad , it is so hard though when he works and is gone or just plain wore out from driving .
Our girls adore their dad we also have two grandsons who love papas truck. i dont know how to explain how it is to people who have never been there but to the women who live my life everyday know and understand how hard it is , being alone as a single mom knowing my husband wont be home for ball games plays and etc the birth of our grandchildren , or just everyday things and time we can never get back .
its a sacrifice for our whole family , my husband said to me today that he never realized how very hard he has to work to just get by , he works so hard and we live very frugally and we still struggle so hard .
i am thankful my husband has a job. and thankful for all the time he works so hard for us . its hard to not be able to plan things or look forward to spending time together something always happens , so in all these years i have lost the gift of looking forward to anything i am thankful God allows him to come home to us.
I guess I am selfish in my thinking there has to be a middle ground . These companies run our men to death and truckers get a bad rap I respect our truckers , just like most things in life let there be one bad trucker and all are put into a group of bad , I dont believe that at all.
God bless the truckers and their families ... keep them safe and please bring them home.
