Blindfolds often make people feel uneasy, regardless of whatever surprise might be in store for them. There’s just something about not having your sight for a few seconds that’s just a bit too freaky to handle.
Sometimes, though, the surprise is more than worth it. Such was the case for this mother, who agreed to be blindfolded despite not knowing what she was about to witness. As she soon learned, it was well worth the wait.

Two and a half years away definitely warrants that kind of reaction. Good for that family, good for that soldier, and most importantly, good for that mom! She deserves an awesome moment like this, and she’ll cherish this surprise for the rest of her life.
