My good friend went through similar circumstances having been married to a truck driver...so this touched my heart.

Loved how you seek the Bible for comfort...

God bless~

I enjoyed it. No red ink.

Heartfelt and inspiring story. Well done.
My dad hauled doubles, triples and oxygen tanks. I can identify - except I think mom was glad to get him out of the house at times. Hauling was dad's lifeline - his freedom from discontent . .. .

This is so very well written. Thank you.

It is difficult when the person we love is on the road or overseas as a soldier.

I'm glad she finally got to spend some time with her husband.

Well written.

You did an excellent job of capturing the mind and emotions of the main character. You did so through realistic dialogue that had a natural flow.

Minor punctuation issues, but an easy fix and does not take away from a great read.

My dad was in the military, as are two of my brothers. That separation was always torture.

Fantastic job capturing those painful emotions. What I didn't see coming was the lesson learned :-) great job rounding it off nicely!
Well written. The dialogue was particularly good.

Well written story. I can relate for my daughter's sake because she too feels like a married single mom. Her husband in a long haul driver as well.

There is a lot of sage advice in your story. I especially liked how her prayer was answered instantly with a phone call. Friends can be our family members too.

Nice job.
