Fearless Females March 13: The Strength of Women

Moment of Strength: share a story where a female ancestor showed courage or strength in a difficult situation.
This is a story about my grandma, my mom's mom.  After the tornado had destroyed their house, my mom and aunt were under a table, aparently under the pile of rubble.  Their dog, Collie, had found them and my grandma lifted up the edge of the house so that the girls could come out.  I can only imagine, as a mother, what she was thinking at that moment.  I also can't imagine the relief that she felt when my mom and aunt were safe.
