Jodi Sta. Maria marked her 39th birthday with so much gratitude in her heart.
On Instagram last June 16, the "The Broken Marriage Vow" actress shared a photo of her by the beach as she recalled all the good and bad things that happened for the past 38 years.
She began, "On June 16, 1982 at 4:29pm, I took my first breath here on earth. Looking back in the last 39 years of my life, I am grateful for the many small victories, extraordinary adventures, even the hardships and failures."
"I am thankful to all the people I have crossed paths with, for giving me a part of themselves and enriching my heart and soul. I am grateful everyday for these experiences. Here I am, 39 and all, still alive and breathing. Thank you Lord for everything!" she added.
Among those who wished the actress a happy birthday in the comments was her boyfriend Raymart Santiago.
The actor kept his greeting short but sweet, writing, "Happy birthday ❤❤❤"
Jodi then replied with, "Thank you ❤"
It was in October last year when the two stars went public about their relationship after they were spotted being intimate in a private residence in Alabang.
Since then, the couple have kept their relationship low-key off the limelight. They have also maintained a good relationship with the actor's former partner Claudine Barretto.
