Story of a family of 12, who live in an historic home in a small town, and try to adhere to the philosophy "Blessed are the flexible for we shall not be bent out of shape."

The homily our priest gave last Sunday during mass was about forgiveness. I struggle with this. I often say that I have forgiven someone, but I hold their offenses in my heart, and have trouble letting go of them, even though I may want to. Evidence of this are the Truly Hurtful Remarks I mentioned in my previous post about comments that parents of large families receive and my Rant post relating what a man said to me in church. As part of my attempt to really let those hurtful things go, I have removed them from my blog, in the hopes that true forgiveness will follow. (Although maybe forgiving and forgetting are two different things?) If I've truly forgiven, will the memory still make me feel hurt or angry?
