Gratitude comes in many forms.
A smile, a word of thanks, a hug, a cheer, a tear, a silent lowering of eyes, a stoic face, speechlessness, and sometimes anger.
Yes, when we help those who are struggling the anger comes and is directed at self not the giver. Anger because she feels unworthy or misinterprets the action of the giver, yet silently knows they need it.
Sometimes, when giving anonymously, the gratitude is silent because the giver is not present.
Whether the giver or receiver, it is always best to be grateful!
And a haiku for you!
With a smile or a yippee
Always be thankful
