Note from a Trucker’s Wife - What I Am Thankful For

Are this time of year, every year, I can't help but take a moment to pause and reflect on all of the things I am thankful for...

Truck Driver with KidsI am thankful this year for many reasons but the number one reason that I have to be thankful for is my family! I have four wonderful children and a wonderful husband.

I have also been getting more and more answers about my children’s medical issues. Getting more answers is allowing us to get them the help they need.

Another big thing I am thankful for is the support that my husband gives to our family.  He is very understanding about everything and a hard worker.  He encourages me and helps me do the things that I want to do.  My family (my mom and dad and my mother n law and father n law) has also been very supportive of my husband. They have been there for the both of us in times of need. 

Another thing I have been thankful for over this past year isl that I am a trucker’s wife.  My husband has a job that he truly enjoys and a job that pays the bills! It's very important to enjoy what you do and it brings me great joy to see him happy.  We're blessed he can work for a great company like PAM Transport that is very understanding and has been there for us in times of need. 

As a trucker’s wife I have gotten the chance to learn many new things such as fixing cars and doing home repairs. I don’t like my husband being gone but I feel that it has given me the opportunity to learn and do things that I may not have if he had been home. I am thankful that I had the chance to learn and do the things that I have.

I think it's good to take time to think about all of the blessings in life from time to time.  So now I'd like to ask you - what are you most thankful for this year?
