Mom = World's Toughest Job!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of cardstore.

Hi Darlings!

Mother's day is always very special to me because it reminds me of just how important a job it is and how grateful I am for my babies. Mother's day is quickly approaching and if you are a mom you know that it's the hardest job you will ever have. I have always tried to be the best possible parent I could be, and although I have completely fumbled it up sometimes I have always made sure that my kids know just how important they are to me.

Mother's day for me is also a reminder of just how amazing MY mother is and what an example she has been to me. She is always so supportive of me, even when she doesn't understand what I do for a living, lol. She is always in my corner, and I love her so much for that! As a mom, my toughest moment has been learning to let go when it's time and being supportive when I don't agree with their choices.

My eldest daughter lives on her own, has a great job in her chosen career, and does really well for herself. But as a mom I am always worried and constantly asking her silly questions like "Did you eat today? My job will never end and although I may drive them a little crazy sometimes they know it's only because they are my whole world! 

Thanks to Cardstore I was able to create a custom card to send to my mom for Mothers Day. At Cardstore.com you get to create custom cards with pictures, messages and even your signature in just a few clicks. Then Cardstore not only prints it but it will stamp and mail it for you too!

Here are few screenshots from my custom card
 There are so many cards to choose from, but I loved the message behind this one. My mom and I both have a great sense of humor so finding a card that was sweet and funny was super easy.
You get to write your own personal messages and even sign it with your name. You can choose the font, color and size of your text too.
The coolest part was how easy it was to upload pics using any number of social media accounts. It linked quickly and made my search for the perfect pic much easier.

This week Cardstore, the custom greeting card website from American Greetings is encouraging you to make mom's card a little extra special. This years card is about that personalized message that let's her know how much you love her. Thanks to Cardstore.com you can make your own card for $2.49 (usually $3.69) by going HERE and using the following Coupon Code: CCF4249 the code is good until May 5th so hurry!

  1. This is a wonderful post Mimi, thanks for sharing your heart with us about your mom and children. My toughest moment as a mom has been trying to instill in my children the importance of a personal relationship with Christ. My toughest moment as a daughter was watching the heartache my mother suffered when she had to say goodbye to her soul-mate of 30 years... but thank God for Grace.

  2. That video brought tears to my eyes. I know my mom went far and beyond for my sister and I. Happy early Mother's Day! I hope it's a great one for you.

  3. Pre 8th grade graduation stuff! ey yi yiiiiiiiii!

  4. My most rewarding job I will ever have!!! #nightowl #warrior #bestfriend #alwaysloving #toughlove #blessing

  5. Mimi.. thank you for sharing this! It ministered to me because... My daughter will be 19 in a couple months and is away at college. I had a convo with her the other day & said "I do not agree with your decision". When I heard myself say it, I was proud. It was our first conversation like this and it was a realization that I am beginning to understand my role as a mother of a 19 year old! Thank you :)

  6. Thanks for sharing this Mimi..... BEST job in the world!!

  7. How sweet of you to share this. I have two young boys (3 & 5yrs) and I've had some tough moments with them, setting boundaries, disciplining, et al. As a daughter, my toughest moment was losing my mom on my 24th birthday, realizing that I just lost the chance, forever to take care of her as a way of saying thank you for all her labor of love over me and my siblings.

    Parenting is tough, being a mom is tougher..lol (Love your website, Mimi)

  8. Oh, Mimi...thank you so much! I lost my mom 10 years ago and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think of her. there are times when I reach for the phone to share something with her and realize she's not there. She was an amazing woman who gave everything she had to make an amazing daughter!


Thank you for taking time to comment ;-)
