Today is my sister's birthday. She turns 50. I am proud of my sister. She has done a good job of raising my niece. She has stayed married for 24 years now in spite of all the ups and downs. She was the main caretaker of our mother while she was alive. She is a strong woman.I sent her a balloon and cup bouquet. We have never done anything for each other's birthday but I just felt the need to do it.We do not have the best relationship but I do love her. I would love for my family to be close. I love each and everyone of them.
