I've always loved the Unicorn. This wonderful mythological creature was not only known for the single horn sprouting from its forehead, but it was also thought to have a beard like a billy goat, a lion's tail and cloven hooves. His horn was said to neutralize poison.
The unicorn has been described as fierce yet good, selfless yet solitary. He is mysterious and it is said a unicorn can only be approached a lovely maiden who is pure and chaste. The unicorn is noble, beautiful and illusive--I suppose that is why they are so fascinating.
Daddy Update: The wound specialist believes the bone still exposed in Dad's scalp will most likely heal over by itself without surgery. Dad's tests have come back looking great. Please pray for my parents outlook--it is so hard for them to be away from home so long. We are preparing the house so they can go home sometime mid-September. We are praying we can get it done by that time--Mom must return home so she can teach the first of October.
