So, last night my amazing friends had a bachelorette party for me. It was so wonderful. They picked up in a limo and when I opened the door all of my friends were there drinking champagne. We laughed and danced until early in the morning. We are heading home for our wedding in just 6 days and I still can't believe it. I feel like there is still so much I have to take care of before we leave. One of these errands including picking up some wedding presents from the store. On my way home the traffic came to a stop. We continued at a snails pace and as I got closer I saw that there we about 30 cars pulled over on the side of the road. Everyone was out of their cars talking and looking up a head. As I got closer I saw a man lying on the road a pool of blood spread out around him and one man on top of him giving CPR.  I couldn't help but stare and as I got closer to my exit I saw his family members crying on the side of the road. So much grief and pain on their faces. Later on in the day I checked the news online to find out that the man passed away. He lost control of his motorcycle and was thrown into oncoming traffic. The article mentioned nothing about who the man was, he was simply an accident victim not a real live human being with feelings and a family. The strangest part was while this was going on a car reading "just married" passed by me and I thought how funny that the very same day can be the beginning and the end for different people. That's the thing about life, You never know what is going to happen from one day to the next. All you can do is wake up every day and do your best. I think the worst part about having Hemophilia is the fear that comes with it. Yes going to the hospital every now and then is unpleasant and its hard and I hate it, but its the every day fear that I find the worst. Even last night on my bachelorette in the back of my mind I thought, well I can't dance too much I better sit down. Its the every day little things that Hemophilia takes away from me that I find the hardest. Everyone says you should live life to the fullest but sometimes you gotta go to bed early and take your vitamins. I don't know much about the man who I saw die on the side of the road today but I pray he had a good life and that he lived life to the fullest!
