A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

My Mother was unconditional love donor.

Today is the second anniversary of my Mother's death. As sad as it is for me to lose my Mother and best friend I know I am one of the lucky ones. My Mother always said "You don't always like what your children do, but you always love them". And she did. I will always know that my Mother loved me, supported me and was always proud of me. The pain of her death is almost unbearable but her love always comes shining through. I miss you Mother, you are always with me.
