That one word describes exactly how I feel right now. When I posted yesterday about being laid off, I neglected to include one very important sentence: "Part of the reason I know I'll be fine is that I have the most amazing support net of family, friends and professional contacts."

Well, as I went to get the mail this afternoon, I noticed a suspicious package in the carport. Something Dan ordered? A belated wedding gift? Nope, none of the above.

The box read "" Hmmm... this was curious. As I opened the box, I had no idea who the flowers would be from. Dan had already treated me to a massage — and I'd already had several nice phone calls from family.

Here's what I found in the box:

 Along with this note: 

"We were thinking about you and thought this might make your day a little better. Enjoy the free time you have for a little while and you are always in our prayers. We love you. — Anna, Ben and Paul"

Immediately after reading the note, I burst into tears. What a super thoughtful surprise.

If "Anna, Ben and Paul" don't sound like familiar names to you, these are my siblings. They're all younger than I am but all so strong, so wonderful and so thoughtful. Sibs, you did make my day... maybe my month and my year. Thank you so much. I love you all.
