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.

Pint of Haagen-Das kind of lonesome.

by ShellDeFelice on November 28, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Chips and salsa and a pint of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, not your traditional Thanksgiving dinner. I counted my blessings today. Healthy thriving kids, clean running water, stocked pantry, full tank of gas...the list could go on. I do have to own , that although I will "make up" Thanksgiving tomorrow with friends and family, it did feel sad to be alone today.

Slight melancholy, nothing a glass of red wine and an entire pint of Haagen-Das won't cure!
