"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.

Carol, I have been so busy it has been a while since I stopped in. Hope things will loosen up a bit, but drama usually takes me away from AR, with that said I am so glad to see you are still on top and giving many a second look, I will have to check a few of these posts out. One I have actually seen:)Endre
