Are you the eraser or the pencil?


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. 

This is for all parents out there... : )

Yup betul.. kita semua akan jd pensil & pemadam.. so bila kita seorang pensil jgn asyik merungut jika pemadam padam kesilapan kita.. satu hari kita akan jd pemadam juga.. untuk membetulkan kesalahan pensil2 kita

Konsep yg menarik sungguh...

Rasa-rasanya dalam kehidupan seharian kita akan jadi kedua-duanya. Yg membezakan hanyalah berapa lama kita jadi eraser dan berapa lama kita jadi pensil.

Anyway, sebak sket bila membaca yang parents kita sentiasa jadi eraser kita...

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
