An Act of Goodness

Ever come across a story that just leaves you speechless? Here’s the story that did that to me. I hope it brings a smile to your face, just like it did to mine.

Starbucks barista Sandra Andersen only knew Annamarie Ausnes as an upbeat customer who would come in the mornings to order her usual cup of coffee. One morning last October, Andersen noticed that Ausnes wasn’t her usual cheerful self. So she asked her what was wrong. Ausnes leaned across the counter and confided that her kidneys were failing and no one in her family was a match. She was losing hope. The next thing that happened was an act of unspeakable goodness.

Read all about it here: CNN’s story, Barista donates kidney to save customer’s life. It’s great to know that heroes still exist.
