well, im not sure what to say!

first of all, thank you so much for all of the birthday comments. it took me 20 minutes to read them all. if you only knew how much you all blessed my was amazing. thank you to "the preachers-wife." you totally rock! it was a wonderful birthday gift.

on the other end of things...i now have a real mattress and a real pillow. how nice! i have like a hotel room comforter or something, but hey, it's not an itchy old wool blanket right? haha. i believe the wind chill is currently -20 here right now. yes...-20. ive got to be the luckiest girl alive. ya know, it wouldnt be so bad if we didnt have to walk everywhere. oh's an adventure. let's see...what else? ooohhhh....always just buy your own water. yea...i took a sip of a friend of mines to take some ibuprofen and needless to say, it wasnt water! water does not burn like the substance that went down my throat. my bad! it was clear. so that was a nice birthday present. the feeling that someone lit a small fire in my throat. nice! many laughed at me until they cried...i coughed till i cried. next time i will just get my own bottle. ah...and did you know that the people at wal-mart do NOT like it when you play football in the aisles? who woulda thunk it? hehe...didnt exactly act like a 28 year old then. but hey...we all have to have fun right? well, i believe i am about to get kicked off the computer. my time is up. i love you all and appreciate your thoughts and prayers. God is good, and so His "little birdy" that sent out a blog telling people about this little sailor. thank you! take care, and perhaps i will have more stories of humiliation share with you tomorrow.


  1. Hayli, Happy Belated Birthday. I just tumbled across The Preacher's Wife post and I'm so glad I did. My younger sister, Allie, is in the Air Force so I definitely have a special place in my heart for women in the military. THANK YOU so much for how you are serving our country and for your willingness to serve the Lord while doing that.

    I'm so thankful you have a comfy bed in which to sleep tonight! I'll be praying for you and look forward to seeing where you head next...

  2. I, too, am a day late. Happy belated birthday and thank you for what you are doing. My son is in Army boot camp right now and I want you to know that I pray that he runs into Christians in the service. I'm thankful for the work you are going to do both for our country and for God.

    :-) Susan

  3. Yay!! I'm so glad you finally go to I've been dying for you to see all your birthday 'cards'.

    So do your blankets have to be military issue or are you allowed personal linens? I mean it - as soon as you can have your own stuff I'm sending you a cushy one! :)

    Love you girl. Don't drink the water.
