I have only seen the missives about once per week.  To me that is
acceptable.  It's a reminder that this is coming up and start
planning.  We all spam the lists for our events, my rule is once a
month till in the event month, then once per week.  I do it on our
local list when deadlines are approaching, what's wrong with saying an
event is approaching?  Sometimes I see an event and go that looks like
fun, then I space out.  If another post comes along to remind me that
i wanted to go, what's the problem.  I wish I could go to the event in
question, It looks like fun.  So what if it is the same message being
re-sent--Who Cares.  I see all kinds of posts over and over and not
just event ads, sometimes it's official SCA stuff from BOD or Kingdom.
 They go out when they need bids for events.  Spam the lists...I plan
to for our next event

They are most urgent that we take advantage of their hospitality and are eager to make us at home. In this, the holiday season, we should be thankful that our friends in Glaslyn are so willing to make each and every one of us part of their family.

I am on three different lists that are all getting emails from Colleen and her Glaslyn family. Thank you, dear for your kind invitations, but we will be out of town this weekend. I was planning on attending until my mother-in-law asked us to join her for dinner on that day. As we will be traveling three hours in the opposite direction, I don't think that we will be able to make it.

I am mindful that each day could be the last we see each other and that trivial things such as multiple emails are such small things that they don't deserve the energy spent fretting on them. Hug each other and be mindful of your blessings. They deserve your energy, your time, and your love.
