Ephemera gets us: The writers are brilliant at juxtaposing warm, fuzzy illustrations of yesteryear with the cold, hard truths of life. And nothing takes and takes away from mom like the parasitic needs of their children. There are so many needs, from messes and sibling squabbles to picky eaters and snack stealers.
Smart kids eventually recognize reality, and like to let their moms know how much they appreciate all the work and sacrifice. "To give is better than to receive," as the old saying goes, and those grateful kids will love to remind their mothers of that wise philosophy with the Gift That Keeps on Taking Mother's Day card from NobleWorks Cards. Because what better way is there to thank their mom than with a card that can be bought with the money that grandma sends for their birthday every year? It's a small token to show your appreciation of all that your mom has done for you over the years.
