Happy Birthday, hivesix!

Your eyes, your eyes, golden flecks in a sea of blue,
A flashlight in the darkness, all my pain they can undo,
Twinkling, twinkling like the stars,
Bearing tales of your battle scars,
I can barely look away, to the say the least I’m into you.

Dancing at the Shame Prom excerpt: Amy Wise

One of the hardest decisions when you’re a parent- how much of the truth do we share with our children? And when is the right time?  Amy Wise struggles with this decision in her essay.

THE LAST SECRET

Amy Wise

“Mama, do you believe in abortion?”

My daughter Tatiana and I had talked about pretty much everything during her seventeen years, but this was one topic we never discussed. I always made sure the conversations veered around it. Now here I was, standing in the middle of our kitchen, posed with the question. I stuttered and stammered, “Oh, uh…that’s a tough one.  There’s so much more to it…um…than you know… just believing in abortion.” Before I could answer her, mercifully, the phone rang. Tatiana went about her business and I never had to address the question I had avoided for so many years.  What she didn’t ask me, thankfully, was if I had ever had an abortion…
