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.

I will miss the little sounds.

by jene2008 on November 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It is the little noises that we get used to that I will miss. Hearing her come in from a date, hearing her knock around in the shower, hearing her bedroom door close or hearing her giggle. I realize that I only have "my little girl" for one more year. After that she will be a married woman with her own responsibilities. I'll still cherish the visits and the phone calls when she needs "mommy" (she only calls me that when she is sick or wants something.) I love that girl and I'm thankful that I was chosen to be her mom.
