Have a plant
I had to go to the housing office to work on more paperwork for my apartment. The lady helping me was very sweet and helpful. A lot of the contractors working on base are Italian and the lady helping me that day told me she grew up in the area. We chatted a lot and as we were finishing up the lady offered me her plant. She cut off a piece of some of her lovely vines in her office and handed it to me. Perhaps it looked a little odd that I was carrying a plant around for the next few hours as I ran my errands, but I felt so grateful that someone shared something so beautiful. It is my new goal to keep this plant alive!
