Life Through my Trucker's windshield

by Dawn
(Ray City GA)

I have been a trucker's wife for six months. I was his military spouse of 6 years and both have their own challenges.

We have one teenaged son. The biggest difficulty right now lies in the fact that I had gotten used to him being home once he separated from the service.

I cried so many nights when he first started then the tears turned to anger. He left me with all of the responsibilities! Well, that was my gut reaction. I stayed angry for quite awhile. Divorce crossed my mind more times than I care to admit.

Now my biggest concern is giving him a home that he feels welcome to come home to. I love him and I am learning how hard it is on him.

Maybe soon I can go with him and see life through his windshield.
