The Sweet Grass Basket
A hard working family, is given a vacation on an island along the Carolina coast. Despite the fact that their small business is having hard times, they decide to take a risk and go. On the way there, they are gifted a sweet grass basket that, they are told, 'will give back whatever you put in it.' They are encouraged to put a wish inside, and when the family agrees on their wish — they are all amazed at the true magic that the sweet grass basket offers.
