Do you ever forget?

I had a thought this morning about this quote from Elder Perry's talk in the April 2008 General Conference:

When we think of eternal life, what is the picture that comes to mind? I believe that if we could create in our minds a clear and true picture of eternal life, we would start behaving differently. We would not need to be prodded to do the many things involved with enduring to the end, like doing our home teaching or visiting teaching, attending our meetings, going to the temple, living moral lives, saying our prayers, or reading the scriptures. We would want to do all these things and more because we realize they will prepare us to go somewhere we yearn to go.

I started thinking about it this morning when I was going through what I needed to do before I left for my bus. I remembered that I needed to pray and the thought came that I often forget to get on my knees on Saturday because I generally don't follow the same routine as on normal days. I thought how I wouldn't have a hard time remembering if I were to understand my relationship with my Heavenly Father better and realize how much I needed that time to converse with Him.
