6 Word Memoir

I was tagged by my friend Tonya at A day in my life

This originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. It's a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were- For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.

Here are the rules:
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. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Laughter, Blessings, Imagination, Wisdom, Love, Poptarts

Wow....this was tough to sum up a life in six words. I am sure depending on the mood a few words might change but these are the 6 I came up with...

Laughter- I can't think of a day with out it.
Blessings- I have so many ,being a Mother is my biggest
Imagination- I have a need to glue things, sew things, paint things and figure out how things are made. Handcrafting items mostly...not cars, lawnmowers etc...
Wisdom- I love to talk with senior citizens and gather their wisdom.......I also love Dennis Prager and his Happiness Hour every Friday (2nd hour). He is full of life lessons and wisdom....
Love- This doesn't need much explanation but I am so grateful for the people I love and that love me....My husband, family, friends....
Poptarts- Are not allowed in the house until I loose 5 pounds ( 5 pounds from the last box of poptarts).....oh so delicious....

I now pass this experience on to
Ann - Dehans Great German Adventure
Michelle- Child Inspired
Erin- Caityn and Sean
Sonja- A Spoonful of Sugar
Katie- The Holmes Family Adventure

Have fun!! Can't wait to read them.

I think Syrup and Golfish definetly fall under laughter and are interchangeable with poptarts.....Sarah's memoir is

"keeping Mommy hopping, while covered in syrup"
