Covid 19 left everyone with their back against the wall. Many saw their loved ones dying, and you can’t do anything about it. Many, including myself, lost their job and even if I’m going to interviews, none of it bared any fruit. It hurts me knowing that my family has to pay the price for me not having an income.
However, I’m choosing to see the bright side of things when I was searching for an uplifting story, I found this one and I wanted to share it with you guys. Rachael Garlic an 18-year-old wanted to give back after a tattoo artist art kept her going when she went through some time getting bullied at school. As the reporter said, Racheal took the saying of tying the knot to the next level.
She worked on making over 600 blankets in the last months. What impressed wasn’t the fact that she made blankets to comfort people. Something that doesn’t come to mind is all the time she gave to help strangers she will never meet.
“There would be some weekends where it would be a blanket-making extravaganza, [sometimes] 12 to 14 hours. I would get scissor cramps because I would be cutting so much,” she said.
The blankets were given to the people from the meals on wheels and in shelters. I know that not everyone can donate stuff or time, but a smile or saying a kind word to someone can go a long way just the same.
