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.

Two Mommies are better than one!

by PoeticallyPondering9 on May 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Five years ago, my mother fell in love with a woman, a woman who is her soul mate, her true love, the one she is meant to be with forever, in every life, in every hour. And, thus, she is not only my mother's wife (legally undocumented of course :( ), but a second mother to my sister and I as well. Many years we have endured and many more years we will survive together as a family. Happy Mothers' Day today, tommorrow, and always. :).
