The World's Toughest Job

Please watch the video below:

"The Boston agency posted this job listing online for a "director of operations" position at a company called Rehtom Inc. The requirements sounded nothing short of brutal:

• Standing up almost all the time
• Constantly exerting yourself
• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week
• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary
• No vacations
• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and other holidays
• No time to sleep
• Salary = $0
The job ad got 2.7 million impressions from paid ad placements. Only 24 people inquired. They interviewed via webcam, and their real-time reactions were captured on video.
Check out what happened below. It's worth watching to the end."

Right before this video I was changing my daughters diaper. In a matter of minutes I had to re-change her because she was poopy. As I'm typing this I have applesauce on my leg and cottage cheese on my shirt. Things can get rough sometimes. During the middle of the video my daughter came up to me and wrapped her arms around my neck. She kissed my cheek and said, "I love you." She watched the rest of the video right by my side and at the end when everyone was saying, "Thank you" she said "dank you" and patted my back. Mothering is the hardest job I've ever had BUT I have never done anything else that has left me feeling so fulfilled. It is so rewarding. 
That being said...
THANK YOU mom for working late nights. Thank you for working overtime on holidays and birthdays. Thank you for being willing to follow the "dress code" and wear applesauce and cottage cheese on your clothes daily.  I can't pay you in money but I hope I can repay you through the way I live my life. You were and still are an amazing "director of operations" for Johnson Inc.
