:: Are u the Eraser or the Pencil ?

from a friend to a friend ....

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.....                                
Hang in there!
