    the turn of the tide

    Dear teachers,

    Would you help to me to make the proper choice of the meaning of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    Iím so thankful to hear that youíve got such an excellent appointment!
    Thanks very much! Itís been a long time coming, but I do really think itís the turn of the tide at last.

    the turn of the tide = a turning point, a crucial moment

    Thanks for your efforts.
