Hands of Heaven on Earth - Mothers

The relief society teaches that the women in our lives are the hands of heaven on earth, and there is no phrase more descriptive I can think of than that to describe the mothers in our lives.  May we realize the divine nature they have, and show the love to our mothers that the Savior would show to them if he were here.  For they are righteously raising his children.  And to those who have no children.  You make such wonderful contributions, and the Lord has promised that if you don't have children here, you will in the next, and that no blessing will be witheld from you in the eternities. 
 

From President Hinckley "wherever you may live, may the windows of heaven be opened and blessings come down upon you. May you live with love one for another. May you reach down to lift up those whose burdens are heavy. May you bring light and beauty to the world and particularly into your homes and into the lives of your children.
You know as I do that God our Eternal Father lives. He loves you. You know as I do that Jesus is the Christ, His immortal Son, our Redeemer. You know that the gospel is true and that heaven is near if we will cultivate it in our lives.”
