"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.

Another amazing list from you, Carol Williams! Thank you for also sharing this month's challenge. I'm so surprised that we already have several entries - and they're fantastic too! I'm loving this freedom and can't wait until the words pandemic, COVID and COVID vaccines are not the topics of any of our conversations...other than in the history books!!

Hi Carol lots of very interesting titles!  I have so much to catch up on this week and you've made it, once again, easy peasy!   Thanks!  Hope you're enjoying a lovely Sunday.  Too bad that Jon Rahm had to drop out of the game yesterday....he was on a roll.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker 
Yes, I felt bad for Rahm but he seemed to handle it well, with his priorities on the wellness of his family. I also felt bad for Lexi Thompson losing that 5 stroke lead and then losing in the playoff. I know she was terribly disappointed but I hope she finds the good in it and comes back even better.
