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.

Good parent because of my mom.

by MsKillie on April 17, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

With Mother's Day approaching, I've been thinking of how much my mom has helped me with raising my son. She took care of him when he was a baby and I was in college and working. She watches him when I go out on dates with my dude. She makes him non-vegetarian meals (much to his delight, since I won't make any!). She brings him to before-school jazz band twice a week since I cannot due to my job. I love my mom and am so blessed to have her!
