Digi Dare #196

Here's a page for a dare at The Digi Dares. The dare was to scrap a miracle and keep the layout mostly white. As usual, this challenge really was a challenge! I scrapped about something that happened just a few days after my youngest brother committed suicide.

Journaling says: Two days after you died, we were all still in shock. The family was gathering together, grieving and asking a million questions, chief among them, “Why?”

I was standing outside the farm on the patio. It was very late and very dark. I was waiting for our cousin and his family to arrive from VT. I looked westward at the clear, cold autumn sky and began talking to you. Finally, I said, “Joel, I just need a sign... I need you to let me know that you are OK.” A second later a shooting star streaked across the October sky, followed moments later by another.

Your stars were my answer and your answer is my miracle.
