Life is short, and it's up to you to make it sweet and it's impossible without change

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others & can admire the other person’s good qualities.

Moral of the story:

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”  George Bernard Shaw 

"Life is short, and it is up to you to make it sweet."  Sadie Delany

Story of Pencil and Eraser

Pencil: I’m sorry.
Eraser: For what?
Pencil: I’m sorry, you get hurt because of me. Whenever I make a mistake, you’re always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself and 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. I’m actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying, I will not be happy if I see you sad.

The conversation between pencil and eraser is same as in our life....
“Our Parents are just like the eraser, and we 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).
Take care of your Parents, treat them with kindness and most importantly love them.
Loving someone doesn't need a reason. If u can explain why u love someone, its called 'Like'. If u cannot explain, its simply called 'Love'.
