My husband and I have been married 11 years and together 13. We have two kids 6 and 3. For the last 2.5 years he's been an OTR truck driver. I always thought I was showing how much appreciate all his hard work, and knowing how much he is sacrificing. Being supportive, without making him feel like a paycheck. It's so hard to be a wife and mother of an OTR truck driver. I don't think he knows how hard it really is. How much the kids and I miss him. How hard it is to have a conversation without a little one screaming. When all I want is to curl up and listen to his voice, the stories, the scares, he wants and needs. To let him feel how much he is missed and respected for his unwavering, willingness to provide for his family. But what do you do when he doesn't think he more then just a paycheck. How do you convince, or show, or tell him that he is everything, and the paycheck is to survive? I miss my best friend, my husband, my other half of my soul. It just seems to harder and harder.
