A fairy sits in her poppy considering how much polishing she needs to do today, or whether her flower is already perfect.

It is, of course, already perfect.

So she is happy to just sit in it, appreciating her home.

I find myself sometimes thinking that, instead of all this rushing around trying to get stuff done, maybe I should just sit and appreciate my home in the same way.
