Effortlessly using technology is something boomers are still learning from millennials and Gen Z. A son, who goes by u/Seandouglasmcardle on Reddit, shared a post that showcased his mother's unique way of providing him updates about his cousins. The post has gained 14,000 upvotes and 188 comments. He uploaded a screenshot of the chat with his mom, which contains an image of a handwritten note at the beginning with some information about his cousins.

What made the conversation funny and adorable was that his mom didn't know how to take a screenshot on her phone. So, when she received a text from one of his cousins, Diana, she wrote it down in a notebook. She then took a photo of what she wrote and sent it to her son so he could know what was going on. The son, amused by the mom's unique way of sending texts, replied, "Did you write her text down by hand and then take a picture of it and send it to me?" She innocently responded, "Yes."

People found the mom's text very cute. A Reddit user suggested in the comments section, "I mean, she did whatever it took to keep you in the loop and is thinking of you. She is so sweet for doing that, even if she took the long way around to do it. I'd write her a sweet thank you note, take a picture and send her a picture of it with heart emojis all over it."

"That’s actually really sweet. It’s also a real genius idea…for someone who isn’t familiar with all the features of their phone," commented u/CharleyBW and u/Known-Skin3639 added, "Your mom writes exactly like my mom did. That note brought back so much. It’s going to be an interesting day."

Another individual, u/Signal-Blackberry356, chimed in, "The effort of trying will always mean more than any outcome. She is a very noble lady indeed. I hope you are able to teach her a few tricks in helping her use her phone." u/Exportxxx echoed what millennials in the comments were thinking, "It's like the biggest boomers thing I have seen."

While many people may think that texting lacks a personal touch, there is no denying that it has become a big part of our lives now. A mom, u/meownmixalots, decided to accept this reality and framed the first text message she got from her son. She posted an image of the framed photo, which is captioned, "I printed out and framed the first text my son ever sent me. Age 5." We can also see the child's photograph at the bottom right of the photo. The boy's message warmed the hearts of many who read it.

Love Alex," and accompanied the message with a lot of emojis. The post has gained 34,000 upvotes and 486 comments. People shared their heartwarming thoughts in the comments section. u/BellaFromSizerland said, "I don't know how old he is now, but hug him relentlessly. My 16-year-old is cute, but I don't get any hugs anymore. He used to jump off the stairs to land in my arms, sniff."
