This Titusville, Florida, grandma, by the name of Mena Lebrum was in for the surprise of a lifetime, when her grandson, Nathan, a corporal, has flown back secretly after two years away to see her. But it seems she has forgotten to take her glasses with her, so the surprise plan fell down the drain. Almost.

Mena’s relatives take her outside and point towards the surprise, but the elderly woman doesn’t quite get the hint. Still, the atmosphere remains, as grandma looks straight up to grandson and down to the ground, not getting what all the fuss is about.

The corporal gets closer, but his Nana still doesn’t understand where the surprise is. Is it on the ground somewhere? Mena can’t take anymore of this nonsense, wo she waves her hand as she turns to go back inside. Nathan can’t let his surprise go to complete waste, so he goes straight in front of her and taps her on the shoulder.

Mena took a few more seconds to recognize the familiar face under his civilian garb, before screaming in utmost joy and throwing herself in his arms. Be still, heart!
