"The Giving Tree" (book) has been a favorite of mine since my youth. "The boy" (in the story) never once gave thanks to "the tree" for it's presence and service to him ... Yet the tree was happy! The tree, on the other hand, showed it's love for and appreciation of the boy in providing for the boy's needs with the gifts it had yet to give. Without words, the tree thanked the boy for his presence (no matter his motive).
