Today is the funeral for the mother of one of the psychologists at my work. She had been ill for a long time but I imagine that doesn't make it much easier.
This is one of the things I really appreciate about my work. There was never any question about taking time off to attend the funeral and support a colleague. Pretty much the entire office is going, because we care about one another, like a family.
That's a good environment for me and I'm thankful to have found it.
