A Mother’s Day Wish

By Brynne Betz Redbuds and sweet tea, cheese grits and hush puppies and a fresh Spring breeze. I took in a deep breath and watched the leaves flutter in the evening light. It was a lovely time, the kind I used to like best in my sleepy North Carolina town. There wasn’t much going on, […]
