Weezy Wire: Lil Wayne Sums up Mother's Day in Latest Letter From Prison

​Now you did it again, Lil Wayne. We're sitting here reading an incarcerated rapper's blog and getting all misty eyed with his message to the mothers of the world -- several of whom happen to be the mothers of Weezy's own children.

On Friday, he posted "Letter #02: A Mother's Worth" to WeezyThanxYou.com, and has since been retweeted more than 300 times, and received more than 240 comments for a message of love that is eloquent enough to make a person want to torch every last contrived Hallmark card on the planet.

He writes:

The love between a mother and her offspring is

hands down the most beautiful thing God created. More than money, more

than fame, more than cars. You know why? Because true love is the only

thing that lasts from the moment you're born to the second you perish.

To all the mothers who read this letter, I hope this day allows you to

feel the love and respect you so rightfully deserve. You are the role

models, not me.

of the entry here, and if you didn't call Mom yesterday, probably

best to crib some of the thoughts here for your damage control today.
