My Mommy Told Me...

"The sun don't shine on a dog's ass all the time. If the dog don't move the sun will."

Please excuse my language, but somehow "butt" just doesn't have the same ring to it, and in order to get the full impact of the saying, I have to use my mom's exact language (it would also be helpful if you imagined it being spoken in a perfect Southern twang).
Now, some of you may be thinking, "what the heck does that even mean?". Well, I am here to explain it to you. Have you ever been in a situation where good things happen to the same person over and over again? It doesn't matter what the person does, good fortune is always upon them. Meanwhile, you've been sitting around trying your absolute hardest to do the right thing at the right time and it all just keeps blowing up in your face. It happens to us all at some point or another (unless you're one of those people formerly referred to as a "dog's ass", in which case I sincerely apologize). But here's the good news: as my momma says, eventually one of two things is going to happen, either the dog is going to move or the sun will. Now, that doesn't necessarily mean that good things are going to start happening to you, but it does mean that you won't always have to stomach the dog's ass in it's own personal shower of glory. And doesn't that make you feel just a little bit better?
Just a little Southern wisdom for y'all to chew on. I hope it makes you smile if nothing else, because you can't deny it's a funny saying. And who doesn't love a good laugh and some good advice from their momma?
