I AM Treated Like A Queen

I've been married for 23 years and my husband and I have a 16-year-old daughter. 
Until I started listening to you four years ago, I didn't realize that I was the major part of the problem in my marriage.   I grew up with a wonderful dad.  He adored my mother and still does.  I never heard my mom complain ever.  She always took care of my dad, and therefore, she was treated like a queen.  For many years, I compared my husband to my dad, complaining that he wasn't like my dad, and why didn't he treat ME like his queen?  That caused a lot of resentment and strain in our marriage.

After listening to you, I realized I can't compare them.  My husband is his own person.  I fell in love with him for who he is, and not what I thought he should be.  When I changed my pattern of thinking, I changed the way I treated my husband.  And guess what?  Everything has changed for the better and I cannot wait to spend forever with him.  I want our daughter to see how important it is to appreciate your man.  It makes all the difference in the world , and now I AM treated like a queen.  Thank you!
