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.

Thankful for this year of hell.

I have a wonderful husband who loves me. I have a hard-working son who has the world ahead of him. I have a new understanding of my brother. I have 2 nieces and 3 nephews who delight me with their array of talents. I am healthy. Two cuddly idiot-dogs. Friends, both in person and in the cyber-world how support me with love and prayers. Requests for art is picking up. I am blessed beyond reason.
