Following in their mother-and-son tradition of visiting a different country every year, Jodi Sta. Maria and her only son Thirdy flew to Amsterdam earlier this month to start off their European vacation as Jodi’s top rated series The Broken Marriage Vow nears its June 24 finale airing.

With their trip also coinciding with her 40th birthday this year, Jodi shared in her latest Instagram post that she was in Prague for her natal day. The capital city of the Czech Republic is just a four hour flight or a half day train ride away from the Netherlands which was where she and Thirdy were visiting earlier this week. 


Sharing a photo of her taken by her son Thirdy in front of St. Vitus Cathedral which is the largest and considered the most important temple in Prague, Jodi made a reflective birthday message on her post.

She wrote, “40. So far it’s been a great year for me. And as I cross the mid-point of my life, it’s grounded me in new ways. Had to learn and unlearn certain things. Love and let go of situations and people. Ignore noises and live a life that’s empowering to me. Stay calm and realize it’s okay not to have everything figured out. Consciously remind myself to be grateful in every situation and cast my cares on the Lord. Thank You Lord for the gift of life.”

In the same post, Jodi also made sure to give thanks to her family, friends, and her adoring fans. “Maraming salamat sa lahat ng nakaalala at nagpadala ng mensahe ng pagmamahal. I thank God for each and every one of you. May our good Lord uplift you and bless you in abundance. I declare peace and joy in your hearts,” she added.
