Mark Twain, the American writer, humourist, publisher, and lecturer was called the father of American literature.  Most of us have read one if not both of his most famous novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. 

 

He was also famous for the many quotes attributed to him, one of those, and the one i love the most is:

 

"Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been."

 

I often think of this when I visit our more senior Freemasons and our Masonic widows.  One of the greatest joys I have is listening to the many stories they are able to tell about the life they have led; the joys, the sorrows, each story itestament to a life lived well.

 

Age comes upon us so quickly, and it doesn't come alone.  Eventually, albeit reluctantly, we have to acknowledge that sometimes we need to seek help in order that we can maintain a standard of living commensurate with our years, and yes, our frailty. 

 

Choosing a care home, whether it’s for yourself or a loved one, is an important decision.  We know it can be easy to feel completely overwhelmed with paperwork and all the different types of care available today, so I'm delighted to be able to tell you that the RMBI is here to help you along the way.

 

RMBI Care Co. is a part of the Masonic Charitable Foundation and as such is YOUR charity.
