πŸŽ“ Riley Vinay πŸŽ“

 Behind you, all your memories.  Before you, all your dreams.
Around you, all who love you.  Within you, all you need....

As the new week begins I start it out still in awe of my nephew
 Riley Vinay. The professor as Arvid still calls him to this day. 
Like so many, Riley graduated from high school on Friday. 
Class of 2021. Chaparral High School.  Temecula California

 Unlike so many, Riley made the experience REAL πŸŽ“.
 Riley expressed what it was and how it felt to be a high 
school senior.  He realistically shared his views 
and his experiences of the last four years.

Arvid and I read his speech together, I was in tears
 the entire time and Arvid was all teary and emotional as well.
 Arvid has seen Riley grow up.  Just like he has seen many 
of my nieces and nephews grow into their adult selves.

Riley is extra special.  Arvid could tell stories
 about him πŸ’œ all very cute and unique. For Arvid 
Riley will  always be the professor.  Try as I do, I can’t
 seem to believe that the little boy is now a young man 
ready to face the grown up world.  You go Riley!

Riley’s words have touched a place in my heart for their 
realness and for the raw emotions it expresses.  My little
 nephew has left me speechless and completely in awe.

A new week begins, for Riley like so many a whole 
new world awaits them.  I see a lot of Rima in Riley. No 
matter what life throws their way, there is always something 
positive to to come out of it.  Rima oozes positivity and a 
zest for life.  Riley also sees the good side of everything
 even when life sometimes tells and shows you otherwise.

Today my nephew has taught everyone a lesson.  He 
has shown us all in just a few words and his actions that
 with courage and determination nothing can stop you.  
I must say I come from a family that never gives up. 

 Life is not always easy, but maybe that’s what we 
need in order to be our best selves. We need to 
struggle and to fight for what we want.

Riley is on the path to great things coming. 
I’m a proud aunt always. Today Riley has humbled me
 with his words πŸ˜ŠπŸ–€ Before he enters the world of college, 
Riley and family will be going on a little mini vacation/adventure 
to San Francisco.  Let me just say, when Rima and family
 go somewhere the see and do everything possible. 

Good day to all and a happy new week ahead.

Monday Morning Blues? Why not change the color of 
your Monday to yellow and brighten up the coming week...
