Question 172 of 365: Who is our fairy godmother?

I have been reading a lot of children’s stories, as might be expected
with a soon to be two and four year old in the house. Many of these
stories have incredibly vague morals about finding happiness, or a
singular figure who seems to have everything figure it out. This
figure is often a fairy or mentor of some kind who is able to see into
the future or know what is going to be better for the characters than
they themselves can see.

I know there is something to be said for not knowing what is coming
next, but if someone around me could figure it out, that sure would be
nice. I’m not saying that I need to be in a storybook, but I want a
mentor who can see the things I can’t and perhaps sing me a song about
what I need to do. Yeah, that would be swell.
