Cheers, to those of you on the road

The Christmas season is one of my favourite times of the year and this year has been no exception. Once the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping was behind us, it was nice to settle down with family and enjoy good company over some Christmas cocktails.
However, each time a transport truck rumbles by on the highway near my house, I am reminded of those of you who cannot be home with your families during this festive season. The store shelves are stocked and the groceries are fresh, thanks to your important contributions. Sadly, too few will take the time to thank a trucker for making sure that’s the case.
So, from my family and I, I thank you all for the work you do around the year. Hopefully, you will be able to make it home for at least part of the Christmas holidays, if not the entire season. The highway can be a lonely place, especially during the holidays. Here’s hoping you find some holiday cheer along the way and get home to your families soon.
