  • When God says, ‘I told you so’

    One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”

    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.

    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.

    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”
