Six Word Memoir....

The Heart of Life is GOOD....
That would have to be my six words. Don't think they are truly autobiographical, but they are the six words that always come to me.....in happy times, sad times.... any time I want to remind myself that yes, Life IS good....because of, or possibly in spite of, what is happening at any particular moment.
These are baby pics of yours truly, by the way...had some Photoshop fun with them....that's my Dad holding me. I'm about six months old. Family really is at the heart of it all, isn't it? Good and bad, biological or not...we all have family and it forms our lives....

Blondie over at Vintage Primitives tagged me to write a six word memoir meme. I think she picked me because of my sense of humor....really? :o) Sorry I didn't make this funny Blondie, but this was the first and only thing that came to my mind....the more I thought, the more I came back to these six words. I think that's a sign that I got it right for me.
Anyway......


Six words that sum up your life. Seriously (and "He Called me his Huckleberry Pinhead" -see my LOST post- just doesn't cut it).....


Ernest Hemingway was bet $10.00 that he couldn't sum up his life in six words. He won that bet when he wrote:


"For sale, baby shoes, never worn."


You can go to Bookbabie's blog and read about the book that was inspired by his quote and how it influenced her to start this meme.


Now the rules are:


1. Write your own six word memoir


2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like


3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere


4. Tag five more blogs with links


5.Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!


I am inviting the following folks to come out and play. Show us your memoir, girls:
*Roseann at Rosebud's Cottage
*Cassie at Mockingbird Hill
and
I love reading every one of these blogs for completely different reasons.....
Can't wait to see their SIX WORDS....

Thanks for playing Steph! Wonderful and no, it doesn't have to be funny; yours is joyful which is a different type of funny. Love it!
With much admiration
