|My friend, Rhonda, a former trucker.|
Today I want to honor the truck driver.
Thanks to the truckers, I can go to stores or shop online to buy products I want.
I must admit, other than hearing reminders on Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers of the lengthy process to get those products in my possession, I rarely think of those involved as I happily display, wear, consume, use, etc the product.
I'd like to thank the truck drivers who sit in a moving monster of a vehicle for hours, moving the very item I want from a factory, farm field, ranch, etc. to the place where I could purchase it. And, of course, I also thank the truck driver who delivers my online purchases to my front door.
Without you I wouldn't have products I enjoy. You sit in your trucks, mostly by yourselves. Entertain yourself with the radio or other audio media. Spend more hours in rush hour and construction traffic, hurdle unplowed snow, wade through rainstorms, and become blinded with mirages on a desert Nevada highway. Your salary keeps you away from home and family for long periods of time. Yet you climb in your rig each day and haul another load for consumers to have the products they enjoy.
You are a blessing to my day.
What worker would you like to send a thank you to?
Congratulation to Ginger Solomon, winner of the drawing for a copy of Terri Blackstock's book, Covenant Child. There will be another book give away next weekend. Stop by and invite your friends to enter as well. I will announce which book will be given away on my face book page: www.facebook.com/Mary.Vee.Writer
