Pencil And Eraser Story
This is one of the best inspirational stories for kids. Once upon a time, a pencil and an eraser were having a conversation about each other’s job. Both of them were praising each other for their hard work. Both of them knew that they are nothing without each other.
Soon, pencil started to draw a straight line. The eraser was looking at the pencil. All of a sudden, the pencil lost its balance and straight line created by the pencil was ruined. Now, the pencil got very sad because she knew that the eraser would have to suffer because of her mistake. Also, read Small Things Matters.

The pencil said to eraser, “I am so sorry!” The eraser did not know what pencil was talking about so it asked, “For what my dear friend?” “I am sorry, you get hurt because of me. Whenever I make a mistake, you are always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish away, you lose a part of yourself and get smaller each time,” cried the pencil.
On hearing this, the eraser replied, “That is true but I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this, I was made to help you everytime you did something wrong. Even though one day, I know I will be gone. I am actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying! I will not be happy if I see you sad.”
Reflection through the story: Our parents are just like eraser, and we are the pencil. They are always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way they get hurt and with time they become older and older. The parents are always happy with what they do for their children and will always hate seeing their their precious ones worrying or sad. You may also like to read, Shake Off All Your Problems.
