On the direct orders from my friends on facebook, here I am, starting a blog. I make no guarantees as to how often I will update it, I only promise to do my best. Today, I'm thinking about six word memoires. Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to tell a complete story in six words. His story? "For Sale: Baby Shoes. Never worn." My heart aches every time I read that. We talk alot about our six word memoires in my household, knowing that they change as we change. Once upon a time, my memoire was "I'll be there in a minute." Always running, always on my way, always in motion... and that was when I only had Charlotte! I'm not sure what mine would be today... something profound?
"Ask questions. Accept answers. Practice gratitude."
Something silly? "Unmopped floors breed practical science experiments."
How about "having children means never sleeping in."
Today, my six word memoire is simple. "Grocery store hugs make me happy". Because they do. I'd love to hear your six word memoire. Check out http://www.smithmag.net/sixwords/, for inspiration.
Hug your kids/partner/pet, and make this a great day!
