A Love Letter For Mother's

My name is Lee Felicia Dilbert, and it is with great joy that I invite you to experience my new column, Flourish With Felicia! Consider it your sweet weekly dose of inspiration, beautiful healing, and love from my heart to yours. Thank you, Thomasville Times and Jill Holloway, for the opportunity to share my heart with Thomasville, The City of Roses, and beyond. I pray that my words give you exactly what you’ve needed for a long while. I look forward to walking alongside you in this fresh season of flourishing. You are not in this world alone, friend. So C’mon, let’s grow together. 

Today’s words are in honor of Mother’s Day. May these words meet you right where you are, mama. Whether this holiday feels like sunshine or rain; I pray you read and receive what the words stand to offer you. May they be the hug you need; filling any emptiness you are experiencing. Always remember you are not alone in this world even if it feels like you are in yours. 

Dear Mother,

 My name is Felicia, and I’m thinking about you. Mothering can look different for all of us. Therefore, If you find yourself responsible for others (even friends) I consider this letter for you.  I’m thinking about how you carry so much on your shoulders. If it’s not the laundry, your child’s school or the note on the refrigerator reminding you to stop by the store to buy the meat on sale on Tuesday afternoon—your hands are just too full! Can you relate? Do you ever feel invisible? Well, if you do or if you don’t–guess what? I’m thinking about you. I don’t have to know you personally to care.

Who mother’s the mother? I will. I want you to know that you are so loved. And love is more than enough for your people. If you love them and are trying your best, give yourself some peace. Your love is more than enough for the people around you. Has anyone ever told you that you have the power to change your world? How you treat the people in your life can be life-changing and, thus, world-changing. I hope that this letter can serve as the very refreshment you need to keep going and to remind you to love you, too.  I know you are putting one foot before the other on hard days. And perhaps you have a dance in your spirit on the best days! Woo hoo! Yet, the responsibility can take a toll, and it can still feel like too much. So I’m here to remind you that I see you. And guess what?  I’m personally inviting you to enter a new season. We both can take more deep breaths in this season. And together, we can choose to seek moments to be fed and watered by the word of God, knowing that your flowers will bloom after a while.

Isaiah 58:11 - "The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."

Mother, I declare that you will feel a fresh boost of energy, and you will begin to see yourself in a new way. You will have new ideas and see the sunshine for what it is. That God’s goodness and brilliance will flood your soul in the best way if you let it. I will leave you with this: the essence of my compassion rests in the tenderness of how my mother nurtured my soul. Life was life. Everyday. However, I am so glad she taught me how real unconditional love behaves. I’ve been thinking about those lessons a lot lately. Reflection is good. Mother, if you were not nurtured or struggled in this area, email me at I would like to pray for you. Beloved, you, too, can experience restoration and a renewed sense of purpose. 

Sending Sunshine,

Lee Felicia Dilbert
