My husband is a truck driver and he is gone through the week. Usually that means that I will see him for his required time off and then he is back on the road again.
A part of me sometimes is jealous of those that have spouses that are home at night and they are able to see each other every day.

It was silly to feel jealous but it happens when you don’t see them daily. These people saw him often and I only got to see him on weekends, so it was hard. It is one of the reasons why we changed how we did things, and learned to make the most out of the moments that we had together.
