I just want to share something that made me smile from head to toe.
An acquaintance of my sister- someone who I have never met- was reading my blog and came accross the section in which I describe myself stroking my KitchenAid mixer, worrying about whether or not I would be able to keep it.
This incredibly sweet and generous woman offered to give me her KitchenAid mixer!
This was a very touching gesture. It also exemplifies to me how Jews can support each other.
Shabbat Shalom.Postscript: I asked and it turns out I can kasher my old mixer and keep it.
