"March comes in like a LION & out like a LAMB." Well, it looks like March will be coming in like
a LAMB with Sunday's forecast of 50 degrees.
I recently looked into where this phrase came
from and learned that on school of thought is the phrase's history is based in astrology and the stars. March starts with the sign of Leo the Lion (strong) and ends with the sign of Aries the
Ram (or a baby lamb). Other historians say this
phrase comes from weather pattern of cold and harsh at the start of March and milder and warmer at the end of the month.
Our 1st day of Spring is March 19th. Springtime
brings about new beginnings and gives
us the chance to appreciate all the things that life can bring us. Take a look around and notice the new life in the gardens, the warm sunshine that lasts longer, longer and longer and the sweet fresh air after a rainy day.
Let's Welcome to Grand Haven Retirement
Carol Ann Roeder
Spotlight on Senior: Rozella Jean (Cline) Reinert-Lower
Rozella Jean (Cline) Reinert-Lower grew up in Delta, IA, where her family farmed. She was one of six children; she has five brothers and one sister! She remembers going to school out in the country in an old one-room building all the way through eighth grade and then attended Delta High School where she graduated in 1942.
Rozella met her first husband, Bob, in high school. They married and had two children, Steven and Pam. In 1981 Bob passed away due to cancer. Years later another love came into her life, Leonard Lower. She eventually married him, and they lived and farmed near Williamsburg. Leonard passed away in 2013.
Rozella’s professional life has always been busy. Growing up on a farm means there was never a dull moment, and she farmed in her later years also. She also has been a clerk and did book-work for Sigourney Sale Barn for forty-six years. She’s loved taking trips to Colorado to visit family, and especially enjoyed seeing the mountains. She also attended and worked the Iowa State Fair, and camped at the fairgrounds the entire two weeks every year!
Since joining the Grand Haven Family she’s really enjoyed making friends in our tight-knit community. Also, it allows her to be closer to her family (to which she has a lot of!) with her children, grandchild, and dozens of great grand children and step-grandchildren. She really feels like she’s able to count her blessings when she looks at her life.
