Kindness in the Cold: Random Acts Warm Hearts

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Just like the snow, appreciation is spreading all over the Ozarks.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Just like the snow, appreciation is spreading all over the Ozarks.    

It's apparent just from all the responses to a post on the KOLR10 Facebook page.

"He doesn't realize how much I appreciated it," Angi McFarland said.

McFarland was touched when her neighbor and friend James Tefertiller helped her out of the snow.

"He asked to borrow my snow shovel, so he came down and got and about that time the snow plow came through and plowed in driveway big time," McFarland said. 

She has back trouble and other medical issues, so she was grateful when her neighbor pitched in to help.

"I about cried because he's such a good friend and he knows the girls and I are having a rough time with some health issues," she said.

Others were touched to help someone else in need.

Russ Matthews and his wife, Susan, were driving near Springfield when he saw an elderly woman shoveling snow.

"I noticed a lady outside shoveling her sidewalk and she looked pretty old," Matthews said.

They didn't know then she was 92, but he turned his car around anyway to help.

"I just didn't feel that she would be the type to be out in this weather," Matthews said. "She had family coming over and she didn't want it to be unsafe for them to come to her home."

And even in the bitter cold, no matter which side of the random act of kindness you're on -- it feels good.

"She was very thankful," Matthews said.

"Pay it forward," McFarland said.
