I thinks it's hard to be aware of what you have when things are going well for you. If your healthy, you prob. wont think about what it would be llke if your were blind, or deaf, or had parkinsons, or cancer etc. Its also hard bec. i think humans have a tendency to focus on whats wrong with our life. And thats why we should train ourselves to focus on the pos., or focus on the ball as Rav Noach Weinberg would say. We should train ourselves to think about what we have and what it would be like if we didn't have those things, like eyesight. (The greatest gift we have is life itself.)And by doing that, we can appreciate life and be happy- "Who is rich?, the one is happy with his lot."

We fail to see the abundance we stand in by the grace of our G-d.
So much expression in the blind eyes that see so much.

one of your best--- so much said--and unsaid--on so many different levels. And the blind man---who could he be?

Wants vs Needs
We do not realise that Hashem always gives us so much more than we need because what we want is so far from what we need.

I think Hashem helped him see becuase the woman helped him so he saw someone cared.
That women did a miztvah without notacing so I think that someone in the worl is doing a mitzvah every second whithout realizing.

Its difficult because people take every things for granted and forget to appreciate all that g_d has given them for free!!

Seeing is Believing
Just because we can see doesn't mean we can SEE. If believing is difficult, then maybe we aren't trying hard enough to SEE.

but with honor
Blind people may enjoy help when they need it, but they usually DON'T when they DON'T need it.
Why is it hard being thankfull? Because we have been raised to believe that it is all "coming to me."

makes us realize all the things we just take for granted for and don't say thank you for them

Even a blind (or visually impaired) person can still have a dream and a vision, and even be thankful for those who help him/her, even spur of the moment. You never know how much some people will be thankful of you for small efforts of kindness. Let's not take that for granted.
