I can’t believe I haven’t made a post in awhile. I hate that. I have the best of intentions and then the next thing I know I am driving or I am sleeping. One of the two and I think next stop I am going to write a post. But I don’t. So now I will.
We have been busy. We love the reefer board and love our FM and love USX. I hate all the bashing I see on Facebook and the forums. I realize we are so lucky to not be in that lot but it just gets old hearing all the BS. Pull up your panties and get on with life. Life is way too short to worry about crap. I’m not saying it isn’t frustrating or annoying but do something constructive to make it better and not just bitch. I have no problem being the cheerleader when it is something I believe in!!!
Ok that is all my rant over that. Remember the part about Life is too short. It’s amazing when you see the things that are happening around the world, around the country and just around you. Enjoy yourself. Smile, laugh, enjoy everyday or at least find something to be happy about everyday.
I feel blessed in my life. I am not saying it is perfect. But wait… it sort of is. At least for me it is. I have an amazing husband that I adore and adores me. Our kids are all doing great and are happy. We get to travel and be with each other everyday. Okay that part can sometimes get old but to be truthful. Not very often. We get to see amazing sites everyday. Meet the most unusual characters on a daily basis. Some that make you smile and some that just make you cringe. In case you don’t know. There are a lot of wacked people in this world. But even the wacked bring a smile so it is all good. We get to meet up with our fellow trucking friends. Who honestly a lot of them are just like us. At that fork in the road and they chose the same path we did. Everyday is an adventure. Some adventures are more fun than others. There are those days that I don’t want to drive or walk the dog or live in a truck. But then something will happen or I will see something that makes me grateful for the life we lead. A couple weeks ago we were able to stop in LA and I was able to visit with two of my best friends. It is funny how much my life has changed and how all three of our lives have changed but all for the better. That is what is so important. To be the best you can be and I realize I sound like an army ad. But God Bless them too. I am grateful to be where I am in my life, with amazing family I love, Friends that I adore and my husband who I thank God for bringing into my life. (Don’t let him know I wrote that or he will be impossible to live with in the truck) Remember I only have 63 square feet.
Thank you for putting up with my ramblings. I am so blessed to be where we are and it wasn’t so long ago that life was a little different. Ok majorly different. But trucking has been an amazing journey for this family and can’t wait to see what the future brings. As I have said before. If anyone had every told me I would be a truck driver. I would have thought they were crazy but it has really brought a lot to my life. In ways I would have never even know about before. I guess it’s all about growth and gratitude!!!
