This is what pays the bills....

It's also what brought us to Montana.   

Yup, you guessed it!  My husband's job.  Thats my sweety right there!  :)

We are grateful for his job. It pays the bills and provides a fairly comfortable lifestyle.

It brought us to Montana where his job is more stable.  And even though he drives every night (M-F) about 470 miles round trip, at least he is home everyday, and I am grateful.

Even though the economy has been rough, rather than laying off their drivers, they cut out things like bonuses and company parties, which didn't make a lot of people very happy, but I am glad because at least my husband still has a job.

We are blessed and I am grateful!

Next time you go to the store, think about how the stuff you buy gets there. And remember, to thank a Trucker. They are out there risking their lives on our highways, days, nights, weekends, holidays, in good weather and in very bad weather. Some truckers are gone for days, weeks and months at a time, leaving their families behind, just so you and I can purchase the items we need.

Yes.... let's all thank our Truckers!

I love my trucker, too!

Amen to that. My brother does long haul and he's usually gone for a couple of weeks at a time.

I understand that Fed Ex is great to their drivers. I hope that's the case.

It takes a special breed of person to drive those big rigs. I have all the respect in the world for them. I have noticed that the drivers today seem to be a lot more courtious and don't usually speed like they used to. It isn't something I could do. I have a friend in AZ who drives long haul.

It is nice to know we are taken care of.

My dad drives for UPS (hope we can still be friends!), and I know exactly what you mean! :)

I am so glad that he still has a job and even though you have had to move sometimes it is for a good reason. I hope things continue to be great.
