MONDAY MOTIVATION

This past week has been one of sheer bliss, encouragement and motivation.  I had the pleasure of visiting the White House and taking part in the historic grand opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC.  To have the opportunity to visit both of these notable places will be a part of my memory forever.  It was euphoric to learn that some people I know, one being a man whom I admired is featured in the museum.  In the Foundation of Faith, the late Reverend T.W. Morris and his son Reverend George L. Morris are presented baptizing a young lady in the Chesapeake Bay at Taylor’s Beach.

geelovestowrite visited the museum with Nerissa Morris who is the daughter of Rev. T.W. Morris and she had this to say about seeing her father and brother being honored, “It’s both an honor and overwhelming to see.”

I encourage all to add this unforgettable museum to your bucket list.  You won’t be disappointed.  Please enjoy some of the flicks I took, while touring.
