Some say that when a mom stays home to raise her children, every day is Mother’s Day. But the truth of the matter is – and I know as I have been a work out of the home mom, a stay at home mom and a work at home mom – and most days are hard work, thankless and frustrating. So to pull a day aside to recognize a mom who puts her kids first and herself last, is special and important. Most of us don’t want much. We want to sleep in, to put our chores to the side all day and to be first for 8 whole hours. A simple card – like one you can create online at – to say Thank You is all the gift we need.


There are so many women and moms in my life that I need to send cards to. Friends, family – even a random woman in a store that is dining with her kids. Everyone one of them has the #WorldsToughestJob.

Surely you have seen this video! If not; American Greetings created a job posting for a company, Rethom Inc. (“Mother” spelled backwards), based on everything moms do under the title ‘Director of Operations’ and placed it across 27 markets through job postings, 14 market newspaper classified ads and 2 Google sponsored ad units, resulting in 2.7MM impressions. The job description outlined all of the tasks of a mother without revealing the job was indeed a mom. In the end, Cardstore only had 24 inquiries – thereby proving that being a mom is the world’s toughest (but most rewarding) job.

Interested in telling American Greetings what they missed in the World’s Toughest Job description list?  Then head over to, and discuss what you think they left out.

This Mother’s Day, Cardstore, the popular custom greeting card website from American Greetings is encouraging people to take the extra step to celebrate mom. It’s not just about the phone call or text message, it’s about that perfectly personalized card that enables us to take pause and reflect on all the extraordinary things she’s done. allows you to create custom cards by adding personal photos, personalized messaging and your signature. Then, Cardstore will print, stamp and send the card for you!

I created my card for my friend, Beth, who has been an amazing rock this last year! She will get her custom card, that took me about 5 minutes to create, in the mail in a few days.
