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.

"Mothers fill our hearts with love"

A porcelain memory. When I was about ten years old, I saved my allowance to buy this little porcelain box for my mom. Before she died, she gave it back to me. I keep special stones and a ring of hers in it. I see it every day on my dresser, but only today did I see that it is a perfect six. It will always be a treasure.
