After selling on the internet for 13 years on sites like ebay and yahoo I am truly amazed at the amount of friendship and caring and sharing found here on OLA. I just wish I had found this site years ago. I know there would have been a lot of sweeter and easier times.

I want to share with you how two ladies are caring and sharing for others this year. If you go to the "OLA CAFE" in the chats you will see a thread called "A Xmas gift from Jas and Ace". They are sharing their talents on posting things on your store for you if you do not know how to do it.

Being one who is having trouble navigating the system I truly apppreciate these ladies who are giving of their time and talents.

The best gifts that can be given are gifts of time. Take time to do something nice for someone else and see how it makes you feel. I know that makes me feel very good.

We have a widow who lives down the road and she is 82 years of age. We see her on her roof sweeping leaves and it upsets us. Al has told her dozens of times let him do it. Being very independent she refuses to let him or another gentleman who lives close to do it. She has children but we very seldom see them around. When I bake I stop and give her some bread or cookies. Makes me feel good. Just wish she would let us help her with her garden and also those pesky leaves on her roof.

Got off the subject a little. I just wanted to say to Jas and Ace that you two are amazing ladies to do this for those of us who appreciate all the help we can get.

To see what these special people offer other than their time you can visit Ace at:

Great post! The community at OLA is what keeps me here. I might be able to make more $$ somewhere else, but the amazing staff and members of OLA are PRICELESS. OLA is good for the soul. :)

They are sweet, talented and generous, but I really must add fleapirates to that short list.

*blushes* Thanks so much for the kind words. I needed to keep my fingers on it because when you don't use it you forget it all. I for one needed the practice again. The pro-Jas, does it daily, I think. :D

Oh, yeah, people on are super!! Sharing is what it is all about!! People here WANT to share! Now that is different!!

CC, I know you would rather you do the leaves but that is one thing your neighbor feels she must do for herself . . . and that's important, too. Heck, my 88 FIL still gets on the roof, drives, cuts down trees, chops wood, etc. I just trust God to keep an eye on him!!
