My husband and I have had a tough year financially. Really tough.

I applied for a management position at my current hospital. I just found out today, I GOT THE JOB! OMG! It's a 50% pay increase, I am responsible for 25 employees and I have a brand new corner office with 2 sides of floor to ceiling windows.

I have been working for several years to get my degree and on my 50th birthday, I got it! The degree was the deciding factor over the other applicants.

I can't tell my co-workers just yet, my boss wants to make the announcement.

I am beside myself with excitement.

Our prayers have been answered. God is good!

I am so thrilled for you! I know how tough it is to need a better job and not find anything. Yea, you for buckling down and doing the extra work to advance your knowledge and degree to be eligible for this job!

What are you doing to celebrate? Perhaps a nice family photo or piece of art to decorate your new office? --Art doesn't have to be expensive. Check out Etsy.

Thanks so much for the wonderful replies.

M in Carolina: Funny you should talk about a piece of artwork. A wonderful gentleman gifted me a watercolor he had painted of fishing boats in a harbor (local landmark). I work in the ER and helped his family through a crisis. I have a perfect spot for it in my new office!
