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.

Mom and dad sleepless. Babygirl rallies.

by accidentaltourist on February 20, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

For those who sent up prayers for my friend and her family...thank you. Babygirl is better today, momma says. She slept most of the day yesterday, and most of the night. Which is uncharacteristic for a child with her kind of brain damage, because her brain/body does not require the sleep that the average child might need. Mom and dad spent the night watching her closely, barely resting themselves, but today she is more herself and they are very grateful.
