Peg, I think you'll enjoy the program, although McCullough does take a quite different tack, in that through his research, he's actually arguing that our social bias (if you can call it that) to consider forgiveness something difficult is perhaps over-emphasized. If we keep calling it difficult, then we make it so, we turn that into a self-fulfilling prophecy.
What he's ultimately saying, I think, is that it's a daily choice, like you said. There are everyday acts that, if we build on them, can lead us to be more gracious overall. Maybe that exceeds what we label "forgiveness," but our definition of forgiveness is something he's keen on challenging.
