When a thank you is better than money

I do the work I do because I need to make money to sustain my family but also because I love what I do. I love writing articles about things, places, people, etc etc and I love creating custom blog/site design for those who needs it.

Being paid fairly for the work I do is only right I believe but sometimes a big thank you is worth more. When I feel that the person who's got a new design is thrilled with it or when someone says "wow that was a great article, thank you". That's when I fly high.

Some people pay and say nothing, no thank you, nothing. That's OK. I did my part and that was the deal. While others don't know how to thank me enough and show their enormous gratitude.
Of course this is a general thought and I could not live off thank you's all the time or I would have serious problems putting food on the table. But it is a nice thought and makes me appreciate the people I work with and also myself and the work I do.

What do you prefer, a big fat check or a big thank you?
