Forgetting to add an attachment to an email is a common enough mistake.  One of the things I like about Thunderbird is its simple extensibility.

So if you find yourself wishing that there was a way to fix the way you do something or a tool of some kind that that will help with a process, then someone else has almost always had the same problem and created an add-on that alters or adds to Thunderbird in such a way that it solves your problem.

Forgetting attachments is one of those things, and the link goes to a module that will scan any email that you send, looking for an indication that you intended to send an attachment, but didn’t.  In my case, this is as simple as saying, “if I have the word ‘attach’ in my email, and there is no attachment, then just check with me before you send the email”.

This has saved me more times than I like to consider. :)
