Have you thanked your Higher Power for what DIDN’T happen?

Recently, I upgraded my trusted Magic Bullet to a NutriBullet Pro. I wanted to increase the motor speed and the NBPro uses an extractor blade, so I can put in raw veggies and they are pulverized to a fine, drinking consistency.
Yesterday, I made my delicious strawberry/carrot/watermelon/pineapple/cucumber/ginger/Tumeric breakfast smoothie. When I removed the blade from the cup, it slipped. Rather than let it drop to the floor, I instinctively reached out to catch it. It landed in my hand, blade side touching my palm.
When I flipped it over, my hand was covered in a faintly red liquid. My mind said, "BLOOD!! ARGH! My hand is cut!! Is it a deep wound? Will I need stitches?" I rinsed it under the kitchen faucet, bracing myself for immense pain, and I felt nothing. The liquid ran off under the water stream and I couldn't find any discernable wounds. (I thought perhaps there was a huge gash based on the amount of substance I was seeing!)
It turns out that the liquid was merely smoothie remnants left on the blade. Even though this amazing contraption can extract all the yumminess from a carrot, reducing it to a fine pulp, the blade didn't cut my hand.
I said a hearty THANK YOU to my Higher Power. Which led me to wonder....how many times have I been saved from a potential disaster without even knowing it? How many times do I say thank you for what DIDN'T happen?
