"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my mother."-Abraham Lincoln

The texts I receive (luckily) from my text savvy mom are no where near the level of insanity or dripping with doses of judgmental commentary as on the popular website Postcards From Yo Momma. Readers submit emails, text messages or other modern correspondences from their mothers and the creators share them for the world to enjoy.

A special thanks to RB for directing us to this unique site.
