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.

Most grateful for mother and AuntMimi.

by TheAngstyPoet on November 22, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Two out of the three strongest women I have ever encountered. I love my mother and Aunt so much. Mimi filled the hole that my father Jeff had left. I couldn't be more grateful for this happy ending. Not to mention my mother is the toughest yet sweet & caring individual I've ever seen. She always finds something to be grateful for and makes people happy. Besides her cooking is out of this world. The third musketeer is no longer with us. My MomMom was the cherry on top. Another tough cookie who gave the best hugs and wit that set you rolling with laughter. I miss her but she's always where it counts, in my heart.
