This prompt was like haiku or potato chips to me… can't do just one!
So instead, I'm gonna do several for different phases of my life. They're kinda fun… try it! I could have done more, but liked the logic of 6×6.

Independence Day; welcome to the world!

He left me; divorced at 22

I'm told the words: “Kidney transplant”

High school crush, he's finally mine

Sweet baby boy, born so early

Trying to find happily ever after

This post is in response to the Mama Kat's Writers Workshop prompt,
“Write about a significant time in your life in only six words”
