Let us Learn from Pencil and Eraser

Pencil: I'm sorry.
Eraser:   For what? You didn't do anything wrong.

Pencil: I'm sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made
a mistake, you're always there to erase it. But as you make my
mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and
smaller each time.
Eraser: That's true. But I don't really mind. You see, I was made to
do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even
though one day, I know I'll be gone and you'll replace me with a new
one, I'm actually happy with my assigned job. So please, stop
worrying. I hate seeing you sad dear.

I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational.

Parents are like the ERASER
Children are the PENCIL

They are always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes.
Sometimes along the way, they get hurt and become smaller/ older, and
eventually pass on. Though their children will eventually find someone
new (spouse) but parents are still happy with what they do for their
children and
will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying or sad.

All my life, I've been the PENCIL. And it pains me to see the ERASER
that is my parents getting smaller and smaller each day. For I know
that one day, all that I'm left with would be eraser shavings and
memories of what I used to have.


May THE ERASERS live longer
THE PENCILS write good things
