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.

Her attitude changes when she dresses-up.

by JAD on January 6, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Some of you know that I take care of my mom who has dementia. Her progress for sure is getting worse, but even with that said I can dress her in her finest clothes and her attitude changes. It's as though she's her old self and nothing is wrong with her. But I know that's not true. She reacts the same way we do when we put on our nice clothes, we feel good about ourselves and yes our attitude changes too.
