This is for all parents out there! 

PENCIL: I am sorry 

ERASER: For what? You did not do anything wrong. 

PENCIL: I am sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you are always there to erase it. However, as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time. 

ERASER: That is true. However, I do not 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 will be gone and you will replace me with a new one, I am 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 are always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way, they get hurt, become smaller / older, and eventually pass on. However, their children will eventually find someone new, but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad. 

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 am left with would be eraser shavings and memories of what I used to have.
