    I surrendered with a hearty laugh.

    I cannnot understand the meaning of the following sentence
    with red mark. Could anyone tell me ,please?
    qot
    As I was standing in the driveway looking at the car, Tere arrived home. Seeing I was beating myself up, she put her arm around me and said, “Honey, we can have a wrecked car and be all upset, or we can have a wrecked car and be happy. Either way, we have a wrecked car, so let’s choose to be happy.”
    I surrendered with a hearty laugh and we went on to have a wonderful evening together.
    unqot

    I surrendered=I gave in, I conceded
    Hearty laugh=laughter from the bottom of the heart, felt laughter

    Yes, I gave in, or I chose to agree with her, with a laugh from the bottom of my heart.
    BTW, it's quot[B]e[B], and "unquote :)
