I'd normally delete those, but this one is from my mother's sister who has been sick for several years.
This is what she sent:
You're one of my 12...Shluchot -- A mystical Jewish formula for good
> mazel (luck) and who of us can't use
> Please do not break! Just 27 words.
> G'mar Chatima Tova!
> G-D our Father, walk through my house & take away all my worries
> & illness & please watch over & heal my family...Amen.
> This prayer is so powerful.
> Pass this to 12 people
> A blessing is coming to you of a new job, a house, marriage,
> good health, or financial comfort
> Do not break or ask questions.
The prayer may be powerful, and I could certainly use whatever blessings I get (there is no intent here to discuss religious specifics besides just getting this-the Jewish High Holy Days are approaching), but I truly don't feel comfortable getting these kinds of E-mails that are chain-mails wrapped up in medicals and religion.
I know it's irrational, but the whole thing makes me feel guilty at being annoyed. Am I wrong to feel annoyed?
