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.

Moved china cabinet, found my name.

by Katcan on May 23, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Performing the sad task of cleaning out my Parents home. My Mother left me her antique bow front china cabinet. We moved it out to the back of the truck and laid it down. On the bottom of the cabinet was a little sticker that my Mother had written my name on. She had labeled many of things she wanted us to have. Broke my heart and made me miss her even more. Still miss you Mother, love you always.
