Well it really has and she is no longer living to hold a grudge against. She had Alzheimer's before she died and the last time I saw her she told me she loved me...maybe that is what my forgiveness got me. It is really the way I remember her.
My mother was an angel with Alzheimer's thankfully, and my mother-in-law who then loved me more than her son! Her last words to me were "I love you" and maybe the only time she ever said them, only time I heard them come from her mouth, ever.
That is great...I couldn't say I am fast at it; maybe that comes with practice.

I believe that for truth!

I always wondered if it means forgiving as many times as they ask or just forgiving without them asking? Which of course I do but just wondered.
I asked our pastor that once and he said Jesus forgave those who crucified them and they didn't ask to be forgiven, neither did they think they needed to be forgiven. So it's without asking also.

So right Siegfried, the way to think I agree!
That is the way it should be. As a young girl in love with this woman's son though I was very sensitive and easily hurt but God did help me through it.

I think forgiveness is a personal choice; I have seen many who cannot all their lives and you can see the hole it has burned into their hearts...or maybe minds.
It got better in the end but of course it was hard to live with for years and I mostly stayed away from her. Maybe that is what she wanted but then I was the only one in bad health willing to come in and do for her. We never know where life will go.
