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.

Nap, shower, nap: days with flu.

by jene2008 on January 18, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It caught me...the dreaded flu. Today is day four and I'm feeling a bit better at times. Dean has been so good. Making sure I have what I need to survive the day while he's at work. Even made a pizza run last night when I complained that if I ate another bowl of soup I'd puke. I just wanted to thank him for the sweet things he does for me. Not just when I'm sick. It's the little things...he brings me my coffee just the way I like it, he always kisses me goodnight and before he leaves each morning, he's my rock when I'm weak and my shoulder when I need to weep. Wait a second...this was about the flu. Oh we'll, thank you Sweetheart. I Love You.
