    No, that's very rude to ask why.

    Maybe she got 400 cards. Does she have to text you all?

    Though why text at all? Why not phone, or - OMG - write?

    A birthday card doesn't require a thank you or a reply. Don't send card or texts if the only reason to do so is to get a response.  

    While it would be nice for people to acknowledge receipt of a card, call, or text, a birthday wish isn't a question or something that requires the other person to respond.  

    You are free to ask her anything or feel any way you want to feel.

    She's preoccupied by the pandemic.  I think you can give her a break.  You're old enough to realize people can and do forget things.  Don't text her.

    If you truly feel slighted by your friend's perceived lack of gratitude, have a conversation and let her know how you feel.  Important to remember, your attitude/behavior is not necessarily going to be shared by others.  While saying 'Thank You' makes sense to you, others may not automatically follow.  If your friend does not thank anyone for birthday greetings/cards, you not receiving a message is not out of the ordinary for her way of thinking.

    Wait.  Your schedule of when thanks should be offer is not reasonable, especially when you aren't in contact.
