You Are Special – One of a Kind

Thank you for all you do to make our world a better place. I hope you enjoy these poems. I didn’t write these. I gathered them to share with you. Read them aloud. Enjoy!

I’m Special

I’m special!
In all the world there is nobody like me.
Since the beginning of time,
there has never been another person like me.
Nobody has my smile.
Nobody has my eyes, my nose,
my hair, my hands, my voice.

I’m special!
No one can be found
who has my handwriting.
Nobody anywhere has my
tastes for food or music or art.
No one sees things just as I do.
In all of time there has been no
one who laughs like me, no one who cries like me.
And whatever makes me laugh or cry,
will never provoke identical laughter
and tears from anybody else, ever.
No one reacts to any situation
just as I would react.

I’m special!
I’m the only one in all of
creation who has my set of abilities.
Oh, there will always be somebody who
is better at one of the things I’m good at,
but no one in the universe can reach the
quality of my combination of
talents, ideas, abilities and feelings.
Like a roomful of musical instruments,
some may excel alone, but none can
match the symphony sound when all are played together.
I’m a symphony.
Through all of eternity no one will ever
look, talk, walk, think or do like me.

I’m special!
I’m rare.
And, in all rarity, there is great value.
Because of my great rare, value,
I need not attempt to imitate others.
I will accept – yes, celebrate my differences.

I’m special!
And I’m beginning to realize
it’s no accident that I’m special.
I’m beginning to see that God made
me special for a very special purpose.
He must have a job for me that
no one else can do as well as I.
Out of all the billions of applicants,
only one is qualified, only one has
the right combination of what it takes.
That one is me!
Because I’m Special!

How to Handle Links and Periods at End of Sentences

I must admit I’ve been a little confused about punctuation for web page links. If you are blogging, You may have to insert the hyperlinks into your document. It’s a good idea to check your hyperlinks before you post your blog or send your email. This insures that extra punctuation hasn’t messed up the hyperlink. You want your readers to be able to click on a link and get there.

Put the hyperlink in the middle of the sentence. I found http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com helpful in formatting my writing online.

Use angled short brackets <>: <https://www.joanyedwards.com>.

You can use parentheses: (https://www.joanyedwards.com).

I used to put a slash and then a period. However, it can still mess up your links. Some websites will work with the slash and others will not.  If it messes up the link, try one of the other ideas listed here. Putting it in the middle sounds great.

Of course you can always use one of the main words to put the hyperlink hidden. For instance, Grammar Girl says put a period at the end of the hyperlink.

Use a table, for your hyperlinks. No periods needed.

Perhaps you’ve found another way that works for you. Go for it.

Thank you for reading my blog. Please leave a comment while you are here.  I would enjoy hearing from you. Feel free to share a link to others you believe may enjoy reading it.
