"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Seriously, thank you so much for the feature - I wondered why that post arose from the dead! LOL

Hello Carol, thanks for editing down some gems here.  When I went to look up your post today I bounced on your home page on AR.  I listened to Zig tapes for a bit many years ago and found him quite persuasive to say the least.  From a vacuum cleaner salesman at the bottom, he sure got to the top of his game.  Great quote you start off with: "You can get anything in life you want, if you help enough other people get what they want"
