It’s so hard for me to pull it together and get out of this slump! With my husband gone I just don’t want to do much of anything, he is my everything my inspiration, my passion and with him being gone I just can’t seem to get around to doing anything. The only time I actually pull it all together is 2 days before I head off to see him! He is a big help though he always sends the sweetest texts and calls every night before bed! I know what he has to do to keep us afloat but what I wouldn’t give to be with him and be his helper again, don’t get me wrong it’s hard work but it was worth it to see him so happy When I was with him! Pipeline wife’s don’t have it easy by any means! We have to stay strong minded and strong willed and all the while hold down the fort, pay the bills and keep our chin up when we are hurting inside because we miss them so much. Our welders are not just a paycheck like so many people think,they are our soul mates, our undying lovers and for pipeliners like mine the last of a dying bread who is holding on to a dying industry that is turning into punk kids and flat bill hats! It’s heart breaking to hear him so upset about where this industry has gone. All of this stress on top of missing my love makes for a real sad time. But It won’t be like this forever! God bless the pipeliner and his wife!
