Pulled out from under!

"It's a good thing
to have all the props
pulled out from under us
occasionally.
It gives us some sense
of what is rock under our feet,
and what is sand."

Madeleine L'Engle

I would have to guess that not everyone would see the "sense" (or the common sense) of this truth...but, speaking for myself, someone who has EXPERIENCED this first-hand, it makes very good sense. Thank you for sharing, as it's wise to remember it. Some of my favorite (magical) memories, when my son was younger, was reading Ms. L'Engle's books together, at bedtime. :)
