Just a reminder that you don’t have to make resolutions. Or huge decisions. Or big proclamations. You can just set some sweet intentions and take each day as it comes. -Victoria Erickson
As some of you know, I’ve been blogging about family history and other things for a long time, but there haven’t been a lot of blog posts in the past two years. Dealing with the loss of my husband, and the mess I was left with when he died, took a huge toll on me both physically and emotionally. I moved into a rental about 2.5 years ago and began recovering.
I finally feel recovered enough to write more again. But as the quote above advises, I won’t be making resolutions, huge decisions, or big proclamations.
I will tell you my intentions, though.
1-I intend to write a blog post each week.
I have some topics in mind already for upcoming posts:
- The Canned Heat Gang
- 60 is the New 20, but With a Few Twists
- Frankie and Johnny and Grandma and me
- And select topics from the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Themes for 2024
2-I intend to self-publish The Government Girl, a novel I’m writing about a World War 2 Government Girl in Washington, D.C. It’s a story about a young woman whose life is complicated by a blackmailing ex-fiancé and the secrets he threatens to expose. The story is sprinkled here and there with things that actually happened to my mom and her friends when they were WW2 Government Girls in Washington.
3-I intend to self-publish a book of writing prompts to help parents and grandparents write about their Christian faith walk, so as to share their faith with their children, grandchildren, and beyond.
There you have it. My intentions for 2024. I wish each of you a Happy New Year filled with love, joy, and laughter, and I hope you will continue to read what I write as the year goes along.
What intentions do you have for 2024?
