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.

Our roles have switched; I'm mom.

by JAD on April 27, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Mother's Day approaching,it's going to seem so strange for mom to be calling me mama on that particular day. With alzheimer's patients I know that's one of the many things they do as the illness progresses. Sometimes she calls me by my first name and that's when I'm assured I still have my mom. Not really complaining, I'll be mom until she gives me another name; after all she's still with me.
