I am posting very early this morning. I couldn't sleep, so I decided to come and do my Friday post. I have seen where alot of my blogging friends do the Friday Show & Tell, so yesterday morning something happened and it inspired me to do a Friday Show & Tell. It's going to be a little different than what most of my friends post about. So here is my Friday Show & Tell: Kelli@Thereisnoplacelikehome is hosting this. If you would like to do a Friday Show & Tell, just stop by her blog and she has all the instructions there for you.
This is my wonderful hubby. This is when he was with the company he was with before his job now. I do believe this picture was taken at a truck stop in Texas. Anyway, yesterday morning around 9:30a.m. he calls me and wanted me to do something for him. I said okay. He gave me a license plate number to write down. I wrote it down. He then began to tell me that he was on a farmer's farm waiting to get loaded and some guy, I don't know if it was the farmer or a farmhand, just threatened his life. He told my hubby he would shoot him and kill him. I thought, OH MY GOD, what is wrong with that guy? Hubby said it was due to a little incident where they guy had to do the work and the guy didn't like doing the particular job. Hubby told me that if he didn't call me later on to call the Sheriff or State Police. I said okay. We talked a few more minutes and then hung up. Okay now, it usually doesn't take hubby long to get loaded. So, about 10:15a.m. I started calling hubby back. I was a nervous wreck after he told me this. I just couldn't stand it. I was so worried about him. He didn't answer his phone. Well, I thought he might have been out of his truck, so I gave him a few minutes and he didn't call me back. Well, I tried calling him again. Still, no answer. I tried one more time a few minutes later and still, no answer. Okay, by this time I am just shaking and my heart was literally hurting. I just knew that guy had shot him. So, what did I do? I called the place in Lepanto where he had got his load information from and talked to the guy that always gives him the information. I told him I hadn't talked to hubby since about 9:40a.m. and that hubby told me what that guy said to him. The guy at the brokerage place put me on hold for about 10 minutes (seemed more like 30 minutes) and then came back on and told me that hubby had already gotten loaded and had done left from there. He said that he might be in a "dead zone" and not be able to use his phone. I said okay and hung up. Well, I knew better because hubby had called me from back in the boonies and talked to me when he had called, so I knew it wasn't the area. So, finally about 11:10a.m., hubby calls me to let me know he was alright. He said that he had had his phone on charge back in the sleeper. I was about to cry because I was just worried sick about him. THANK GOD HUBBY WAS ALRIGHT. So, that my friend is why I am showing this picture of my hubby. This is something to show and tell about. I know you are probably saying this isn't something most people would tell about. I'm not most people. I am very THANKFUL for my HUBBY and I LOVE HIM WITH ALL MY HEART. He puts his life in danger everyday out on the road just to provide for me and our girls. This also coincides with yesterday's Thankful Thursday. I am so THANKFUL that my hubby was okay. I just don't know what I would do if something happened to him. He is such a wonderful husband and father. So, I guess I done 2 days in one. So, there is my Friday's Show & Tell and Thankful Thursday all in one day. We are just a poor southern family living week to week barely making ends meet. We have been through some rough times in the past and going through rough times at the present. But, as long as we have the LOVE of each other and support of each other, we have it all. We have more than alot of people will ever know. Okay, I will quit now because I am about to make myself cry here . LOL. But, I just wanted to share this with you all. Please remember my wonderful hubby in your daily prayers and pray for his saftey while he is out on the road. I would so much appreciate it. All of my blogging friends that I have met on here are really nice and wonderful women. I appreciate each and everyone of you.
Okay, now on to something else. LOL. Well, as many of you know it has done turned much colder here. It is 36 degrees as I am writing this at 12:48a.m. I do believe it might make it below freezing before sunrise. I love cool weather, not cold. LOL. I do love snow also. But, no ice. I can drive in the snow, but I cannot drive on ice. They say we are going to have a mild winter this year. Who knows what we will have. Only God knows.
I want to "THANK" Diane of Diane's Place for helping me last night with my blogsite. We emailed each other and then we messenged each other and I think she did a great job. So, to "THANK" Diane for this I am going to pass the Community Blogger Award on to her that I received From Tammy of My Gentle Retreat. I would also like to pass this on to RocRebelGranny for Welcoming me over at her blog the other day. Also, I am giving it back to Tammy for Welcoming me on her blog as well. And last but not least, Pea, this is for you also. You are such a wonderful person and to the whole community of blogland. I hope each and everyone of you enjoy this and pass it on as you see fit also.
My youngest daughter is out of school today. She gets a personal day because she scored Proficient or Better on her Iowa Basic Skill Tests from last year. It's the test's they give to elementary students in the Spring. She is going to sleep late. My oldest daughter has to go to school. She will catch the bus and ride it to school. It stops right by the highway to the side of our house. Both girls are going to my parents tomorrow night to spend the night with them again. They are getting up early Saturday morning and going to Mississippi for the day. My dad has a brother down there and his wife has cancer and not doing so well, so my sister is going to drive them down there for the day and visit.
I did fix me and the girls some tuna fish and soup for supper last night. We had tuna fish sandwiches and Clam Chowder Soup. (Nope, it wasn't the homemade kind - it was out of the can) It was still good clam chowder soup. I'm not sure what is on the menu for tonight. Since the kids are going to be gone and I'm not sure what time hubby will be home, I'll probably just fix me somthing quick or go get me a catfish dinner from the local restaurant here in town.
Well, guess I'll go for now and try to get me a nap before my alarm goes off at 4:45a.m. I have to call hubby at 6:30a.m. and wake him up so he can start his day and get unloaded and get back home. Yall take care and have a great Friday and may God Bless Each and Everyone of You. If you are starting your holiday traveling this weeken, then God Be With You and may you have a safe journey to where you are going and back home safely again.
Hugs to all,
