Assalamu alaykum,
so sis Oum Anas tagged me!! Jazak'Allahu kheir. That gave me the chance to look up the story behind the 'six words memoir'.

Here's my 6 words memoir.


And the short story behind it...
In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway bet ten dollars that he could write a complete story in just six words. He wrote: "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn." He won the bet. Now an online magazine is asking its readers to sum up their own lives in just six words.
Smith, the American online magazine, has used the Hemingway anecdote to inspire its readers to write their life story in just six words, culminating in a book of the best contributions, entitled "Not Quite What I Was Planning".

I am going to tag:
Sister Umm Salihah- Sister Iman - Sister Aminah - Sister Qalballah - Sister Um Nour - Sister Nadia
