Thanking God

The other day when Dad and I were on our way to check out some chores that we needed to do for a friend we nearly ran into a llama on the highway! The next morning on the way to do the chores we just about ran into two elk! We all just laughed about it and then we continue on our way. But later I started thinking about how little we thank God for protecting us. He has protected our family so many times. I remember when Mom rolled the van, nobody was hurt, how many times we've got bucked off (or fallen off) of horses and cows, and so many other dangerous things we've been involved in, and nobody has ever broken anything more than a finger or toe. Naomi's knee accident has been about the worst thing that has ever happened in the family. So I am going to try to remember to thank God everytime I escape getting hurt.
