Your “Secret Subject” is:
If you had a dream that you were Dorothy and landed in Oz, who in your life or that you've met would be the Wicked Witch, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion? Why?
It was submitted by:            

I have been thinking about this prompt ever since I received it. I <3 The Wizard of Oz. I even dressed up as Dorothy for a chorus performance once. I sang "Over the Rainbow" of course. 

So, who would be the Wicked Witch? I'm afraid I can't tell you that one.... LOL But there are at least 3 people in the running.

The Tin Man - Well, if you'll remember the Tin Man had heart ALL ALONG! He didn't really need the Wizard of Oz to give him one. So, with that in mind, my oldest daughter Deanna. She has so much heart!!!!

The Scarecrow - Again, if you'll remember, the Scarecrow had brains the whole time. More than most of the others. LOL My 2nd oldest son, Joshua, would be my Scarecrow. 

The Cowardly Lion - What a misnomer. He might have been a little afraid of somethings but when push came to shove he was in it all the way. The most fearless person I know is my oldest son, Jacob.

Most important, they (other than the witch) were all the closest people to Dorothy. 

Hmm... Didn't I just do a post like this?? Yes, I did!

When I first got the prompt I was a little worried. I can't call anyone DUMB! Or Heartless! But then I thought about it more. The whole thing with the movie was that everyone already had what they needed inside them. Isn't that true of most of us?? If you dig deep enough don't we all have what we need to get by already within us??


  1. Well done, take a positive spin on the negatives. I like it. I think we are all like the lion and scarecrow. We think we are dumb but we're not, we think we don't have the heart or courage to do a task but we do. It's confidence we lack.

  2. I just love how you got to the heart of, not only the people in your life, but the characters in the movie.
    I'm not one of the 3 in the running for the Wicked Witch, am I?

  3. Stacy I like what you did with the prompt!

    You are right oftentimes the things we need are already inside us we just need to realize it and dig deep and pull it out!

    But who's the good witch?

  4. I am a little worried that you are afraid to out the wicked witch - it must be someone who reads your blog ;-)
    My conscience is clear though, hahaha!
    I agree, we've got it all in ourselves. Up to us to deploy those qualities! Being aware of it is a first step.

    1. LOL!!! Definitely not you, Tamara!!!! And I doubt very seriously that the contenders read my blog but YOU NEVER KNOW!!! ;)

  5. that has always been a common theme in movies perhaps first introduced by the Wizard of Oz (which I have always loved as well) that we doubt ourselves when we shouldn't and don't give ourselves enough credit. We're our own biggest critics right? And maybe it's just because I've read Wicked and I'm drawing from that as well, but I think the wicked witch doesn't have to be completely Evil with a capital E so much as misguided and misunderstood. My dad would have been my Wicked Witch when he was still alive. I think at times he just didn't know any other way to be. He wasn't evil even though he sometimes seemed it, and he did love me, but he just didn't have the right tools to be patient and kind.

    1. I have Wicked but haven't read it yet. I did see The Great and Powerful Oz, though, and that does give a different perspective on the witch. For me, that would also fit as well. Knowing the contenders for the Wicked Witch, I doubt any of them would that way about herself.

  6. I wouldn't be able to name my Wicked Witch, either... at least publicly. Great job with this!! You and your kids are very lucky. :)

  7. Awesome job with this post....I adore The Wizard of Oz as well.

  8. oh boy...I'd have a hard time limiting it to just ONE wicked witch, LOLOL

    Great post
