Pencil and Eraser
Pencil: I'm sorry
Eraser: For what? You didn't do anything wrong.
Pencil: I'm sorry cos you get hurt bcos 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 job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad. :)
I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil. They're 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..."
This is to all the parents out there...
Found this at my friends page. At first I thought it's just another simple story nothing interesting. But seeing everything and reading it. It really touched my heart. How true it can be. No, not how true. IT IS true. Our parents sacrifice many things for their children. In return, the children should do the same thing. Yet, many children now days neglect their parents, which had helped them in so many ways. Without our parents, who are we? We wouldn't even be here.
Our parents had brought us up the best as they can, providing us with all the needs for life. Even if we are married our parents are still there for us. Hoping that everything that is ok with us. Ensuring nothing goes wrong in the relationship and so forth.
No parents hate their children. Children only think that way because at times they might not get the attention that they want. But remember, our parents always remember us. They pray for our well being. Parents love their children no matter how bad they are. If we look from the movie KL Gangster, where last time his mother didn't want him, but actually it hurt her to see her son go away like that. In the end we can see that Malek's mother still wants him back. Because, he is her son.
So everyone, love your parents first. Because they are the ones that is always with us. They help us in our life. Don't regret if they are no longer here with us in the world. Cherish all the moments that you have with them. No matter if they are your steps parents or even your guardian. Love them.
