Thank you for sharing your story, Karen. I am so sorry to hear of your loss – this must be a hugely painful time for you and your family.

How fortunate, though, that you were able to be with her at the end. How fortunate, too, that you have a workstyle/lifestyle that has enabled you to take care of your mother-in-law when she needed you most.

To my mind, this is one of the great privileges of soloism. I wrote about this a while ago http://www.flyingsolo.com.au/live-smarter/work-styles/flexible-working-arrangements

I am thinking of you and sending love on behalf of everyone at FSHQ.
