A couple weeks ago, Jason was on his winter break and we were running errands together. A simple act but particularly wonderful since he rarely joins me when he is in school. The radio was blasting as we sang and danced along; Jason singing falsetto and me acting like I actually know how to dance (I don't). I told Jason "I hope when my life is flashing before my eyes, one of the images I see is of us dancing in the car together like this." We had recently watched some late-night episodes of I Shouldn't Be Alive (bad dramatizations and all) and nearly everyone spoke about this "life flashing before my eyes" moment. Jason smiled and said simply, "Then make it this one." And so I breathed it all in and locked it away, putting in a silent request. This one.
