Happy Mother's Day to all you railroad wives you ladies are amazing
It's amazing how you stand by your man. He works a train for 12 hours
sits in the hotel for 15 plus hours and works a train back for 12 hours.
He does this day in day out. Weekends, Birthdays, Holidays 1st ,2nd and
3rd shift. And you ladies stand by your man. He deals with domestic
problems when it's going to be 36 plus hours before he gets back in
town. And you Ladies stand by your man. He pays the mortgage,
electric bill, water bill, cable bill, car loans, hair dresser and the
Chinese lady who does your nails and you ladies stand by your man. He
pays for vacations whether he can go or not and you ladies stand by your
man. He steps up and takes on the mother's roles when you ladies need
a break and you ladies stand by your man.
He puts your crazy son the children and you through college. And you
stand by your man. He builds a new home because you wanted a bigger
house and you stand by your man. Thanks for being so understanding and
standing by all the hard working bullshit taking Railroaders.
