For the last 20 years my wife and I have made our children our priority. I was for the most part a stay at home dad while my wife worked as a CNA (Certified Nurses Aid) in a nursing home. She insisted that I be the one to stay at home with our 3 children because she felt I was better with the kids. Our children are now raised . Our son has started his family and our two daughters are going to college thanks to scholarships. Second daughter starts college this fall.
Now it's time for me (DAD) to start focusing on taking care of my wife and myself. My wife won't admit it but she is at the age of 43 starting to physically break down from all the years taking care of the little old people in the nursing home. She comes home in pain everyday after work but bless her heart, she always has a smile and always says " I'll be ok , I'll take some Ibuprofin and lay down". She has dedicated her life to her family. Now I need to pick up where I left off to become a stay at home Dad and let her relax. ....I want to start driving a semi...The problem is that my wife does not drive and has an honest phobia about automobiles. So I have been the one to do all transporting over the years.
I want to raise enough funds to be able to go to a "Semi Drivers School" and at the same time know that my wife and my home are safe until I can get on my feet in the trucking business. That way I won't be at the mercy of a company who may take advantage of me because "They Trained Me". But at this point I will go to a "Company Sponsored Training Course" if I have to. "Company Sponsored " means I will have to take care of my own eating, clothes washing and supplies for 3 weeks while in training and then for about 2 more weeks after starting on the road with a "Trainer". And I'll need to help cover expenses for my wife at home.....
I have never asked for help like this before....I (We) have always helped others. Until now. Now I am asking for help,....Please. And thank you to any and all who will help....I won't ever forget it. I am not telling my wife about this request that I am making until it's done....If all goes well , I know it will bring tears to her eyes to know that strangers could care so much.....When the fund drive is over , I will post a video of her response. And again, in advance....Thank you and May God Bless You All..
