Six On The Sixth #12: Family

Six on the Sixth Family

I completely forgot to post this on the sixth! Oops… Enjoy!

We play games with each other.

We can talk and we listen.

We always stand by each other.

We laugh, cry, and get angry.

Sometimes we’re near, sometimes we’re far.

But we will always be together.

Six on the Sixth #6: Mystery & Dad

Since six on the sixth is six six-word stories on the sixth of each month and June is the sixth month of the year (that’s a mouthful…), I decided to do a two-for-one deal today.

One for Mystery Month and one for all the fathers out there. Enjoy.
