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 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...

We can Replace eraser But we cant replace our parents with another so We must love our parents and at least we can make them less worried about us by making few less mistakes and Loving them with Full Heart ..

Make sure Nobody can Ever take place of our parents because they are the one who will never happy when you are not Comfortable ..


“We never know the love of our parents for us till we have become parents.”

Nice simile, I am a father to 3 fully grown children, two boys 20yrs & 21yrs plus a daughter 25 yrs. Last year I became grandfather to my now 1.5 yr old grandson thanks to my daughter. I am truly blessed as they are all in good health or though times have sometimes been tough, we took the rough with the smooth. The best thing is my wife & I are 45 yrs old so still young enough to be daft, yet old enough to know better. Family is precious, so treasure them for as long as you can & overlook the little mistakes, life's too short.biggrin

Not always the case. I knew my parents love almost right from the start. As the youngest of my family, when my birth parents divorced my mother felt she coulnd't care for me so I was placed into foster care. She kept my older siblings however. Eventually I was signed off from clearing the way for adoption. My foster parents adopted me. Kind of hard not to know you're loved after being tossed away.
My parents went on caring for foster children for over thirty years. In that time they took care of over 300 children. Some for a very short time, others for a couple of years. Babies to teens. They also adopted some of them. My brother and five sisters. I can't count the number of graduations and weddings they attened through the years. Usually listed as mom and dad on the wedding progams, my father gave away a good number of the young women at those weddings. Godparents of more kids then anyone should be. They never forgot a bithday even after the kids left our homes. If possible they sent at least a card. Out of their care of children came my two sons. Both foster children of my parents, they went from calling them mom and dad to grandma and grandpa. Three of my sisters have not only given birth to children but have adopted a total of six between them and my brother has adopted two besides the one they gave birth to.
The kind of love my parents shared with us didn't stop at their deaths. It continues with the birth of two grandchildren and adoption of three by my sons...and yes, we all knew we were loved.

Princegor - thanks for that post. Very refreshing to come across such an unprovoked positive message these days, especially online. Not to sound corny and/or melodramatic (that's not my style), but the world needs more random, shared positive stories/thoughts/comments/etc. to offset the constant skepticism, negativity and overall bad vibes that we are inundated with in everything from the news, to film/tv original content (i.e. all media asidefrom the news) in today's world.
More specific to the original post, parents and all loved ones should be cherished each and every moment. I'm in my mid-30'a and luckily I've only lost 4-5 close relatives and friends so far in my life. The good that has come from those losses though, is that as a result I am much more aware of showing and speaking my appreciation and love for those who are important to me.
Any younger people reading this thread who have yet to experience loss of a loved one, friend, family or otherwise, I'm sure you've heard it before and probably roll your eyes each time you hear it (I know I did), but do yourself a massive favor and consciously show love to all who matter to you, and do it every time you see them. Somewhat conversely, if you have been dealt a rough hand in life and don't have any friends or family, or even if you do but don't share a connection or have a close relationship, there is always a way to attract love/positive vibes into your life and it's very easy: be nice to everyone and smile. That's it. I'm not saying you have to instantly become social if you're an introvert or tell everyone you love them like a hippie with a head full of acid circa 1967 - just look people in the eyes when you come in contact with them (at the store, walking down the street, at work, anywhere ) and smile. Not only will it make them feel good, but it will likely make you feel good as well and it will certainly bring that energy back your way. Sure, there are always going to be down times when you can't even force a smile, but those moments will become rarer and rarer as you focus on giving positive energy to others.
That's my "two cents" for the night (and rest of the year!). Sorry for the rambling babble, but hopefully it resonates with someone.

Im 31yrs old and although i have spent many years out living my own life i now live back home with my mum. And after all these years she still does my washing, cooks my meals, listens to my whinning and all the other stuff a parent does for their child. And its not because she has to do it, its just her way of showing the love..
