Man Loses House & Job in Two Hours
Real-life Country Song: Man loses house, job in 2 hours!
April 25, 2009
OREGON CITY, Ore. -- An Oregon City man just couldn't catch a break Friday. First he lost his job and then he went home to find his house on fire.
Victor Gonzalez said there was a silver lining to getting fired Friday.
"If I hadnít gotten fired from work, I wouldnít have come home, and I donít know how far the fire wouldíve gotten. So I guess thatís a good thing," he said.
The single father lost his job and his house in a matter of two hours Friday morning.
The fire broke out just after 9 a.m. at the house on Canyon Ridge Drive. Luckily, everyone got out safely thanks in part to Gonzalez's 12-year-old daughter.
He said he knew everything would be OK with his daughter there to help out.

They say when it rains it pours. This poor family had a monsoon that day. They have lost so much but being the optimist I am it just means bigger and better things are on their way. Many prayers to the family.

Wonderful words of wisdom!!!

You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
Isn't someone missing me?
