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.

Mother's Day: flowers and Emergency Department.

by oopsalittle on May 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Started out lovely - met up with my beautiful daughter for brekky, lovely afternoon with John - picking olives from our gorgeous trees. Flowers delivered from my fabulous son that lives in Sydney. Visited my mum in aged care - sang a few songs she remembered - left her smiling and happy. Back at home - out of the blue John has chest pains. Called an ambulance - spent the next eight hours in the emergency room. Tests and more tests - we're finally back home in the early hours of Monday morning. Tired but relieved - he got the all clear. Not sure yet what it was but we are more than happy that another health scare is over - a Happy Mother's Day
