Now, I’m not very good at doing things everyday. I don’t exercise every day. I don’t write everyday. I don’t blog everyday. I try to, but usually I will skip at least one day in a week, maybe more.
There is one thing that I usually accomplish every day: I read my scriptures.
I’ve been doing this for a long time now. I haven’t kept track, but I haven’t missed a day in at least a year. It’s the one and only thing I have done really, really well.
But yesterday, I forgot. I just didn’t get my scriptures read, and I realized it today and I felt heartbroken. I had done it so long and then I missed just one day, and not even for any good reason. I just forgot.
I guess we aren’t taken away from our pursuits by huge obstacles–it’s the little things, like just forgetting, that make us stumble the most.
