Picture's worth a thousand words, OP. Send him one of a pretty birdie.
Its not about the credit, it's about giving someone a nice family portrait. As long as it was appreciated, it doesnt matter that you got no recognition.
I don't believe OP was expecting anything in return, but a 'thank you' would have sufficed. She was hurt because she didn't receive any acknowledgment whatsoever, when she was the one who did all of the work, while the rest of her family, who didn't even seem to show any concern about it, received all the credit. You'd most likely feel the same way... -___- and it really wasn't truly 'appreciated' if he never acknowledged the person who put in the effort to do something nice for him. It's not about recognition, it was rude.
So, for example, you set up and throw a party for me, and I thank everyone BUT you, you wouldn't be offended?!? If you cooked dinner for the family, but everyone thanks someone else BUT you, you wouldn't be offended?!? I think either you are a huge push over, or you aren't using your head very well
Hey at the very least you know he likes it! I'm sure it was an honest mistake it's not like he'd leave only you out on purpose. Don't worry about it!
You know what they say, Do a good deed, and throw it into the sea.
It's a saying I quoted this from my own culture. It's not really known in English. Sorry about that. But, it means doing the good thing shouldn't for the sake of appreciation. Specially, for those who we love. Don't wait up for recognition. It's like you are thrown something in the sea and you know you will never get it back. I hope I clear up this for yah :)
