Happy Birthday
One of my pseud0 nieces turns 18 today. 18 is such a happy birthday. She's struggling with having a great birthday, though, as her mom has cancer and just got out of the hospital after having surgery to remove it. For the past 3 months, my niece has had to watch her mom go through chemo & radiation, help her younger sister with her school work, and manage the household responsibilities so her dad could help her mom. She has really taken her family and the responsibilities of it and carried them around with her, all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA. A bunch of us are going to bring over dinner and try to make her smile today. I hope she knows how proud we all are of her. She is a wonderful person and thinks of everyone else before herself. If anyone deserves a great birthday, it's her.

Happy Birthday, Jho Marie.

Happy birthday to the niece. Really, I've found that it only got BETTER after 18 - here's hoping that holds true for her, too (though you may not want to tell her that it didn't REALLY start getting good until around 30...)
