Laid off today...blessing in disguise?

Today I was unexpectedly laid off, along with a couple of other people in the company. Things had been slow for a while, but this kind of came out of left field. I was leaning toward not returning after the baby is born. They're eliminating my position entirely. While I am in a bit of a shock, I can't help but think this came at the right time. I had been struggling with the physical aspect of work and emotionally I wasn't doing so well. This morning in fact I had a pretty ugly cry in my car (pregnancy hormones didn't help, I'm sure).
I'm looking forward to taking the time before the baby to relax, prepare, help my mom out with my grandma's caretaking, focus better on my tutoring (I'm an adult literacy tutor). It's just strange that this morning I was employed and now I'm not.
How should I celebrate??
