"you are my mother, you are my father, you are my family, you are my friend, you are my knowledge, you are my wealth, you are my all, o light of all lights you are." (This is the translation I found online.)
I cried when Jill spoke these words to us today. I didn't think her leaving would affect me so much, but it truly is. I am going to miss her deeply. I feel like I'm finding this amazing family in Philly and it makes me sad Jill will be leaving, but I know she will be back to visit.
Ok, I'm not going to get all mushy gushy here. I'll leave that up to Jill.. to make us all bawl our eyes out in the next few weeks.
