A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Happy Valentine’s Day, Frank! – 14 February 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

It’s Valentine’s Day
And cold as can be;
But my heart is warm
’Cause you love me.

We’ve been Mr. And Mrs.
For forty-six years –
An exciting journey
Through laughter and tears.

We’ll leave this earth
A more compassionate place;
Together we’re working,
Not just taking up space.

While helping others,
Together we’re learning;
To make a difference
Our hearts are yearning.

I wrote this poem yesterday, and this morning we were greeted with lots of snow – finally! It’s really beautiful! Before breakfast we went out and shoveled the walkway and part of the driveway. The temperature is hovering around 9 degrees F. and the snow keeps coming down, so we’ll be going out and shoveling several more times today and tomorrow.

Every Valentine’s Day, Frank puts a beautiful card that he has made for me where I’ll see it in the morning, and this morning was no exception!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
