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.

My new child; happens to be-mom.

by JAD on December 30, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Talking about mom. With her dementia she's so like a child; her stuffed animals that she cuddles. The expression on her face after I tell her to put back the eggs she's removed from the frige; among other things. I'm reminding her to comb her hair(sometimes she does) and of course sitting with her most of the day until we take a drive which she loves; as a younger woman she was never to eager to ride with anyone, now it's just the opposite, she's ready to hop in the car at all times. What a change! My new child.
