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.

Cooking. Singing carols. Life is good!

I have my own little holiday tradition. I cook and prep as much as I can on the day before Thanksgiving. While doing all this, I haul out all my Christmas music and play it loudly while I work. I often get just a tad weepy while doing all the things I used to do with my beloved grandmother, Leah. I work like crazy and sing and cry and oddly, when this happens, all is right with my world and I'm reminded how good a life I really do have.
