Brittany Lynn Garrett was getting ready for her day just like she did every morning. But when she looked up, she saw her husband, Christopher, standing in the doorway, holding their young son. There were tears in his eyes.
It was so unusual for Brittany and naturally she assumed the worst. But the truth is stunning and you’re about to see why. You see, Chris is a combat-disabled veteran. After suffering a shattered pelvis and undergoing rehabilitation, Christopher can walk again, but with a big limp, making certain physical activities hard for him.
So when Chris found this note below, along with a gift, he was overcome with gratitude and joy, as was Brittany.
The note was anonymous, but thanked Christopher for his military service. It also said that they hoped Christopher could use his gift to spend more time with his family.
So what did he get?
A riding mower!
Pushing a standard mower was a difficult and painful chore for Christopher, but a riding mower like this made the job of mowing the lawn much easier and faster, leaving Christopher more time to spend with his wife and son.
Brittany and Christopher don’t know who gave them the mower, but they’re thrilled and very touched that someone would go to such lengths for them.
“Thank you whoever you are!” Brittany says. “You don’t know how much pain this is going to save him from!”
Christopher also added, “The war that I have seen has hardened my perception of society, but after today, I truly understand that everyone has their place to be a hero.”
And here’s hoping he’ll have more free time to spend with Brittany and his son!
