Scary? No Thanks! – Poem

Hey, everyone.  Well, tomorrow is Halloween.  As I have stated in previous posts, I personally don’t care for it, or celebrate it.  So, I decided to change things up a bit by having some fun writing a poem about it.  Enjoy! 😉


Spooky, scary, howlingBOO!

Smoke-filled, darkness?

Not on my list of to-do’s

Things that fright,

And goes bump in the night…

No, sir…not me, I’ll just leave on the lights


Ghosts & signs that say, “Beware”

Uh, uh…don’t ask, don’t even go there!

From house to house, children flood the streets…

For sweets & treats that are fun to eat

And why, I don’t know…seems like such a silly thing,

But Me?

No, thanks!

I’ll be home chillin’…

Yes, I do LOVE watching Charlie Brown!  Did you enjoy that?  I hope you liked it. 🙂

Is anyone else planning to stay home & just chill?

And, to add a bit of motivation to your day…for those who are parents taking out the kids, please do remember to take a breather! I know it will be hectic trying to squeeze trick-or-treating into your busy schedules, & trying to have everything run smoothly without any hiccups.

And for everyone else…Lock your doors!  No, I’m just kidding 😉  But again, please remember to be safe everyone, & do enjoy the rest of your Monday. “Toodles!”😊


Fall Welcome



Cool breezes & hot cider…

Pumpkin pies & cozy fires,

Freshly picked apples, filling baskets…

Warmed toes under thick blankets

Fallen leaves crumpling under our feet…

Children going trick-or-treat,

Fall, welcome…

Motivation Monday – Just Do It

Lately, busyness has taken over my day…

So, I haven’t had much time to write or say,

But what I will say is this…

Say…what you need to say,

Do…what you need to do…

For no one can speak what’s in your mind,

Or, know what’s best…like YOU!  ©JLH

Summer Is – Poem

Summer is…

Messy, summer is fun,

summer is spending all day in the sun…

summer is campfires, smores, & late nights,

summer is windy days spent flying kites!

summer is tan lines & splashing in lakes,

summer is mornings with chocolate pancakes.

summer is time spent with family & friends…

summer is…hoping that it NEVER ends   (


I just LOVE this poem! Now, it’s your turn…what is summer to YOU?

Motivation Monday – Are You The ONE?


What did you think of this poem? I’m sure many of you remember the movie, “The Matrix”. If you don’t… you need to look it up & watch it immediately! There were 2 additional sequels…but I loved the first one the best. So basically, the point of the movie was to find the “ONE”.  The ONE who was willing to fight…the ONE who was willing to sacrifice…the ONE who could save the whole world from a life under the control of computerized machines.

You know, most of us think to ourselves…“What can I do? I’m just ONE person”.  Well, Albert Einstein was ONE person…Bill Gates, was ONE person…Oprah Winfrey…Michael Jordan, the list goes on & on…ONE person is plenty!

Instead of looking around for someone else…….BE THE ONE!

Make up in your minds, that YOU will be the one that steps up to the plate…that YOU can make it happen, that even though you can’t do everything, & can’t help EVERYONE…you will make it your goal to make a difference for….SOME-ONE. 😊
