It’s true, Mikey is an indelible part of the story of TMtP. And today on his birthday, we want to celebrate one special part of that. Some of you may remember that Keith was our very first commenter ever. And that was truly amazing. But Mikey… Mikey was the first Vocal Point member to embrace us publicly beyond the confines of the blog. He did so by posting the following on his facebook page way back on January 6th:
Oh, how it warmed our hearts to be given the virtual thumbs up by one of the True Group (and actually, now that we think about it, Mikey may still be the only member of True Group to have posted about the blog on his personal facebook page). And it’s somehow fitting that Mike was then the first VPer we met when we went to Provo (and actually, he was also the last one we saw before flew back home… our trip had Mikey bookends). He’s sort of the ideal gateway VPer, always ready with a smile and encouragement. And so today we are thrilled to wish him happy birthday! Have a great one, Mikey-guy!

We hope you and your adorable family have a blast celebrating your day!
