You could have an experience with the gift of the Holy Ghost today. You could begin a private prayer with thanks. You could start to count your blessings and then pause for a moment. If you exercise faith and with the gift of the Holy Ghost you will find that memories of other blessings will flood into your mind. If you begin to express gratitude for each of them your prayer may take a little longer than usual. Remembrance will come. And so will gratitude. You could try the same thing as you write an entry in your book of remembrance. The Holy Ghost has helped with that since the beginning of time. You remember in the record of Moses it says: And a book of remembrance was kept in the which was recorded in the language of Adam for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the spirit of inspiration. (Moses 6:5.)
