My life in a (very small) nutshell

A few weeks ago Angie tagged me for the six word memoir meme, where you have to sum up your life in just six words, which I might add is an awful lot harder than it looks. I've been pondering it on and off since then, and after much deliberation and hand-wringing I've come up with this:

Family and friends keep me strong.

I'm not traveling this path alone. I may not know what is around the next bend but I know that whatever it is, good or bad, I won't be facing it alone. I know that I will be wrapped in a blanket of love and support. I know that my family and my wonderful, wonderful friends both outside and inside of my computer will be right there rejoicing in my joys and crying with me over my sorrows. All of you, you make me strong. You keep me strong. I couldn't do it without you. Thank you.

Now I'm going to throw this one out to all of you prolific writers out there. Who wants to take up the challenge of summing up their entire life in just six words? Post your entry and come let me know in the comments. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.

WOW! That says it all, doesn't it? What a challenge, and I don't know if I could ever do that. I'll think on it, though. This statement doesn't tell me anything I didn't know about you already. But, you know that you keep your friends strong, too. Your kind support of other people is one of my favorite things about you (other than your excellent writing).

That's a wonderful sum up of you, Robin.

Here's mine:

Safe harbor. Sturdy shoulder. Big laugh.
