If you sync your contacts and email to a web service of some description you can access those that way.

But text messages? no way to remotely access those.

I'd suggest your best bet is to get someone to send it to you.

Actually, if you have Messages app on your Mac and you use iMessage on your iPhone, you will see your "texts" in there. You just have to be sure the settings are the same on your iPhone as they are on your Mac for the iMessage/Message function. Meaning you use the same # or email on both for messaging.

Same goes for your iPad. Make sure the settings are same on all 3 devices. I did this very thing this weekend actually. Start conversation on one device, continued on another, then moved to another.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Which is ok for iMessages but not SMS texts unfortunately.
