Woman Shocked By Note That Made Her Husband Cry

It wasn't Christmas, but it looked like Santa came early for one disabled vet and his family. An anonymous neighbor left an incredible gift, and the family is extremely grateful.

Brittany Lynn Garrett stopped in her tracks when she saw her husband, Christopher, standing in the doorway. Christopher was holding their young son, and he had tears in his eyes. The worried wife and mother stopped what she was doing because she thought something bad had happened.

Christopher was not the kind of person to just start crying. The disabled combat veteran had come through a grueling rehabilitation for a shattered pelvis, but he was always determined to press on. In fact, he was about to go out and mow the lawn with his old push-mower. He struggled to complete the chore with his injury, and it took him a longer time than it would take most people, but he never complained.

But in the doorway that morning, Christopher wasn't crying because of something bad. He had tears of joy and gratitude in his eyes. He showed his wife a note left for him: "I hope this saves time for the things that matter most in your life. Thank you for your service and for my freedom. Sincerely, A grateful American."

Outside the house was a brand new John Deere riding mower.

“Thank you whoever you are!” Brittany said in a post on Facebook, hoping the anonymous gift giver would get the message. “You don’t know how much pain this is going to save him from!”
