AOK Thursday: Definitely Not Random

Last week we talked about the silliness of the term “random act of kindness.” There’s no such thing. Acts of kindness are deliberate, intentional acts. Just ask Terry Mustion.

Ms. Mustion is a single mother of three daughters who has offered to donate a kidney to her mother who is suffering from kidney disease and diabetes:

“Even if you’re on the list, sometimes it takes 10 years or more to find a suitable donor.” The doctors said her body would have a better chance of accepting the kidney if it came from a family member. I got tested and found out that the match was beyond perfect. I agreed immediately – it was never a question.”

It will take a couple of months for Ms. Muntion to recover, and the three girls will no doubt have a few more items on their to-do list during that time. It’s an act of kindness from the whole family.
