(WTRF) — A Maryland teacher won $50,000 after her husband bought a $5 lottery ticket from a local 7-Eleven in hopes to cheer her up after a rough week.

Robyn Meija, 39, a mother of two, spent 18 years working as an elementary school teacher. After a rough week, Meija’s husband thought to cheer her up with a “Ca$h To Go” scratch-off game from the Maryland Lottery.

The couple was shocked to realize they won $50,000 from the winning ticket, according to a report from WLWT.

“My husband took the ticket to the store to scan it, just to be sure it was real,” Meija said. “We also asked my brother-in-law to come over and scan it on the Maryland Lottery app.”

Not only did the winning ticket lift Meija’s spirits, now the couple says they can buy a new home.

“We have been saving money for a down payment on a house, thinking we would be ready by the end of the year,” Meija added. “But now, we don’t have to wait!”
