I grew up in NH and retired to FL six years ago. My husband of 30 years left me for a 38 year old woman and ruined me financially. I moved to TN to live with my daughter and her family. She gave birth to my first grandchild in Sept. and I have been around him every day. This has been an amazing blessing. He is just a sweetheart. I received a communication, when I got to TN, from a boy I was best friends with in 7th grade. We dated a little in high school, but my dad didn't let me date much. He went into the Air Force and I went in another direction and we lost contact. He found my name on a class reunion list and contacted me. He was in TX. He had lost his wife to cancer 4 yrs ago. He came up to visit me several times and we are getting married on Feb 6th, 2016 after not seeing each other for over 53 yrs. Even bad stories can have a good ending. I am very interested in helping seniors get healthier. Me and my new husband to be try to exercise 45 minutes a day. I do the treadmill and he likes the stationary bike. We also do a lot of walking. After we get married I am getting him on a weight training program too. So many changes that I never expected a year ago. I thought my life was going to be in FL with my ex husband. I am happier than I have ever been and have a partner in life that has my interests. We have never forgotten about each other, but had no idea where the other one was. I am looking forward to my new life.

Update: We got married on Feb 6th of 2016 and are very happy. Got my Prince Charming.

    Thank you for the treadmill goodie.
    Yesterday I went to the sporting goods store and purchased one and it is in the middle of the living room floor waiting to be assembled.
    So the goodie was perfect.
    I hope your feeling better and continue to improve.

    You can find the Mezuzah at and
    Same sellers but sometimes Amazon is cheaper - compare prices.

    As Christians, we read the entire Bible, not just the New Testament. AND, Jesus was not only Jewish, he was Devout Orthodox. Nowhere have I ever read anything other than Jesus speaking of His Father - I have never understood why a new religion was founded when He never declared himself to be the Messiah. I do believe that Jesus died for our sins - but He never answered the Jewish Prophecies, the Messiah was supposed to come with sword in hand. A wonderful old preacher told me that that scenario would be played out in the 2nd coming of Christ.

    However, if we can believe that blood on the lintel (doorpost) was all it took for the Angel of Death to pass over (Passover) the home, I don't see why a Mezuzah would fail to bless anyone ready to profess the one true G-d.

    At Amazon, you can do a search for Christian Mezuzah and one will come up. Only $10 and I can use all the blessings I can get.

    Stay Well, Stay Healthy, Stay Happy and Stay Blessed.
