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.

Pray for my mother, now hospitalized.

by JasperBloodstone on January 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

On Tuesday evening, January 8, my 89-year-old mother was admitted to a hospital. There is fluid around both of her lungs and around her heart (I learned this today, January 11. A cardiologist is now treating her). Being her primary caregiver here at home, I am praying for her without ceasing. Will you also please pray for her?
