Husband Appears at Door Bawling With His Son in His Arms—Then He Hands His Wife This Paper


Her heart sank as she prepared herself for the worst…


It’s not often that we’re brought to tears over the love of a complete stranger, but that’s exactly what happened to Brittany Lynn Garrett and her husband Christopher earlier this week.

Christopher was out cutting the lawn with their son when he showed up at the front door with tears streaming down his face. Brittany’s gut reaction was that something had gone dead wrong. She was bracing herself for the worst and practically already making funeral preparations in her head when her husband handed her this sheet of paper:

It turns out, somebody had been watching her disabled vet hubby struggle to haul their push mower around their property, so he/she left a brand-spankin’-new John Deere out front!! The anonymous angel merely signed off as “A grateful American.”

Brittany shared the beautiful story on Facebook on Wednesday, and it is quickly gaining viral attention. Her post reads:

“Where do I begin? Something AMAZING happened today! As I was getting ready for my day, my husband appeared at the door with tears in his eyes holding our son. My heart sank and I thought someone we love took a trip to Heaven. … He quickly assured me that no one had died, but someone had just given him a very expensive riding lawn mower! I don’t know who they are, but they have been watching my 100% combat disabled husband push mow our entire yard once or twice a week, and thought this would help make more time for the important things in life!!! THANK YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE!!! You don’t know how much pain this is going to save him from!!!”

And this powerful story is leaving more than just the Garretts in tears, as can be clearly seen in the emotional Facebook comments pouring in:

Love comes in all shapes, sizes and colors—but it sure is pretty in John Deere Green. Share this amazing story if you agree! :)

    I wish he I could afford to give such a gift to someone. What a special person. All I can do is thank you for your service. Why can’t everyone follow this example?

    It took a true Christian and grateful person to do this for this family. I don’t know you but Thank You for what you did. There are so many people out there today who don’t work because they think they are owed something they didn’t earn . This man a vet hurting to care for his family . He’s a proud man and deserved this gift. There are many more out there who need help too. God will provide for them. Thank You for giving me a free world to live in, and your sacrifice. GOD bless you.

    Wonderful. Glad there are folks out there willing and able to follow their best impulses. And, glad we still have young men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for the principles they believe in, and for the good of the rest of us. Thank you Mr Garrett for your service and sacrifice; and thanks to the secret donor.

    If I could, I would do something like that every day of the week. As it is now I do an “occasional random act of kindness” for someone who is in a bad place. For example, my son and I had breakfast last weekend at Denny’s. There was a homeless man outside the restraint. I put a $20 in his hand (all I could afford at the time) and told the gentleman to go get some breakfast. Things like this need to be done more often and by more people, especially those who can afford to do it.

    Thank you for your service to our nation. What a blessing! When the opportunity arises and God will provide the means you must pay it forward and bless someone else in need.

    Start supporting local stores still in business. All global corporations retail or otherwise have to support the progressive globalists. Voting Trump in will buy some time but we are all doomed especially our kids and grand kids if we don’t rein in Congress and limit them to one term. All Democrat congressmen vote for the globalist agenda and so do the anti Trump Republicans. If we allow the globalists to win we will have gone full circle and once again serve an un-elected tyrant. If Trump does win we still have to face the possibility of Obama playing a “Trumped up Martial Law card”(Blacks in the larger cities have been maintained for decades in the slums by government handouts for just this purpose. They are being primed right now to be the catalyst by Obama and his white masters. )I hope the majority of blacks see through this charade and stand shoulder to shoulder with white patriots. Maybe Rev King’s dream was for all of us. As for the Muslim thing; The globalist have determined that Sharia law is the best way to control the masses. Women will definitely have gone full circle.
