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.

This may be an extreme example but quite interesting:

Hi Sheila Anderson 
I hear ya. Your comment reminds me of the 3 years I traveled almost exclusively visiting family and friends after my husband passed away. I pretty much had everything I needed IN my car.

Despite all that has happened, and continues to happen, AR remains a tremendous place to connect, share and learn, as it always has been.

Looking forward to reading what I missed!

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS 
I don't really mind being home but I don't really care to HAVE to stay home.

That said, I'm staying well and hope you and yours are too!

Hi Carol:

I suspect most of us feel that way. We like to be able to make choices and resent when something interferes with that freedom. But this is a time to think about not only ourselves but about the greater good for all!

Oh my goodness, another impressive list and several that I missed, Carol! We so appreciate your weekly efforts to find these nuggets.

I hope you're doing well and finding the positive in being at home. I fully expected NC to follow suit but, the governor hasn't just yet. I've been sick so, I've been self-quarantined anyway. Trying to do a little each day and keeping the positive juices flowing! This too shall pass...
