Driver appreciation week is here, and from the time I have started with FirstFleet, Inc. I have not only acquired a new outlook, but gained great deal of appreciation towards the tough jobs you as drivers do daily.

I have worked in other career fields where trucks were received, my father and grandfather were truck drivers, with that I had basic knowledge of what a truck driver did day to day. Did I fully understand? No.

I’ve come to value and understand how many days a truck driver is gone, Monday - Friday, Holiday’s, and what is a weekend? How many first days of school, birthdays, super bowls, and special events were missed? Out on the road, driving the economy, putting food on shelves and the clothes that we wear into the stores we enjoy most every day.

By now you have seen the images of the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the devastation it left in its path. There is untold loss of property and that doesn't even compare to the loss of life that many are grieving today. Our hearts and prayers go out to those impacted by this horrific event.

In spite of the harsh realities we continue to hear stories of hope and unity from the communities impacted. You have seen individuals rescuing people they don't know, stores opening their doors for shelter and even large scale fund raising events like this one by J.J. Watt which is currently at $28 million dollars and counting

Today is a day set aside to reflect and give thanks for the blessings of life. We are as a nation very blessed, and there is much to be thankful for. As you reflect on life today my guess is that there are freedoms, places, faces and names which come to mind quickly. Today is a day to cherish these blessings in our life and even verbalize our thanks.
