What "In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb" Means To Me

If you are familiar with the poem, In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb, you know it is referring to the piercing windy March weather giving way to dear and calm month of April but in my case, I think of the weather as a reflection of life circumstances. In other words, I think of the piercing, cold temperatures of March to the trials of every day life while the calm temperatures of April remind me of the outcomes of those trials. 

And speaking of trials, let me remind you

of Sal Esposito, was summoned to appear in court on March 23, 2011 because the court thought Sal was a human rather than the handsome Boston-area cat that he truly is. After much deliberation, Sal's name was scratched from the jury pool never to be summoned to court again.

Do you see how Sal's trial led to a purrfectly calm outcome?  

And speaking of trials, do you remember when I

got in a horrific car accident in mid-November of this year? As for  me, I will never forget that my precious Kia Spectra was pronounced dead two days afterward but at least I was alive although I was bruised and humiliated.

But there was light at the end of the tunnel a week later when we purchased a very cheap and very cosmetically damaged 1999 Geo Tracker that got me from Point A to Point B until mid-March due to mechanical issues. Because the repairs were more costly than the cost of the Geo, we opted to be a one-car family until

we remembered that a friend of ours had an older Honda who needed a new home at a reasonable price. We couldn't believe that this handsome vehicle had been waiting for us for years and all we had to do was to negotiate payments and then drive it home. We feel very blessed to have a reliable vehicle that is roomy enough for Daisy and a few of her friends, groceries,real estate signs, etc! 

So here's another example of another gloomy trial that led us to a peaceful ending! 

What about you? Have you had a gloomy March that changed for the better in April? I'd love to read all about it! I love reading about positive outcomes!

  4. Wow, we did not know you when you had that accident. So sorry for it and for all the aftermath. Wonderful that you can now look at it in such a positive light.
