Most people don’t realize all of the things a trucker gives up when he takes on this job. Over The Road Truckers don’t get to have all the comforts of crawling in a cozy bed next to their loved ones at night. They spend many, many HOURS alone, eat by themselves in truck stops or coolers prepared by their wives, and are under stress with delivery deadlines, traffic and road rage.
They face the risks of the road and weather conditions everyday. Four wheelers will perform vehicle acrobatics not to be stuck behind one. Cars will slide right in front of a big rig not realizing that it is near impossible to stop as quickly as you can a car.
Remember, any time you reach for medicine from a shelf, or reach for a glass of milk for your child, each time you go to the store for supplies that sustain us in our lives, A TRUCKER BROUGHT IT TO YOU !
The First Trucker’s Wife
When God created the first trucker’s wife,
He paused for a moment to consider her life ~
She’d have to be strong with an independent air,
To manage the home when her husband’s not there.
She’d have to be brave and not full of fright,
To sleep by herself on a dark, stormy night.
She’d raise up her children with a firm hand,
While her husband’s out driving all over the land.
Her love must be deeper than the road is long,
To stay true to her husband, keep the marriage strong.
She’d have to be special ~ more than most wives~
For truckers work hard, and live hard lives.
But, If they work together in all that they do,
They’ll build up a home and a love that ’s true.
.Be kind to a Trucker today !
