I wish I had . . .

I wish I had a big yellow umbrella for you…

The words went straight from my heart to the tips of my fingers as I wrote to someone I loved who was having a hard day.

I wish I had a big yellow umbrella
that would keep away all the rain in your life.
I would hold it over your head,
and the drops would splash, splash
and you would never even feel it.

But I don’t have a big yellow umbrella—
so I’ll walk through the rain with you.
I hit “send” and soon received a reply from my dear friend Heather. She expressed what the words meant to her. She also had an idea: Why don’t we turn this into a greeting card for DaySpring? I worked in the editorial department and she was down the hall as a designer. So we teamed up and DaySpring loved the card we created.

Eventually it won Card of the Year at the Louie Awards for Greeting Cards in New York City (yep, there really is such a thing).

And it just became a mini movie you can send as an e-card. So I’m excited to share it with you…

yellow, Umbrella, bad weather

Who will you walk through the rain with today?
