My body is mine
And no matter what time
It feels like playing
I like what it is saying
It was made with love
And some stars from above
My body enjoys the sunshine
And an occasional glass of wine
It feels the pain of others
And enjoys the happiness of mothers
My body makes me smile
It would like to ride the Nile
My body is my temple
I refuse to let it go
My body is quite special
I just wanted you to know


Jillian BarnesJillian is a lover of life. She enjoys new adventures and time spent with her boys. She also enjoys Kundalini yoga, ayurveda, boot camp and groove dance! She looks forward to travelling to Bali for her 50th birthday and having her own space to express her artistic side. (I wish people smiled more and frowned less.) Life is beautiful and we must be thankful everyday.
