This story is a good reminder to all of us....it's not the material things that matter...but as long as you have each other.

A couple in Connecticut survived a house fire last Monday, but lost everything.

Firefighters found the engagement ring that was still in the house...when they gave it to him, he immediately got down on one knee, right in front of the burned-out house and proposed.....five days later, they got MARRIED in the front yard!


They told the news that surviving the fire put things in perspective.  And they don't care about all the stuff they lost . . . or the fact that they didn't have flowers or even a DRESS for the wedding.  They're just happy to have each other.


So.....next time you are complaining about all the things you DON'T have...remember these two.
