yes and no.
my question below will explain why...
To expect a simple 'thank you' for giving something away willingly, lovingly...is a valid expectation or we should never expect that at all?
appreciate Your response
I rarely give $$ or possessions with expectation.
I normally give as my spirit Guide prods or as my heart shares with me.
& if asked (or they say they're gonna give in response) i always say Food (especially if it's Home-Cookin' ) or some type of art by their creation (ie., Poetry, Painting, Sculpture, & or Wood Carving)
AND i have rec'd paintings, clay creations (though the Hippo's ear was broken in a move and i've not healed the sculpture yet)
