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 women and mothers in our lives.
May we realize the divine nature they have, and show the love to these daughters of God that the Savior would show to them if he were here. For they are righteously raising his children, both as parents and leaders. They raise their own and/or help raise others children.
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.”

Quote from "To the Women of the Church," by Gordon B Hinckley" https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2003/10/to-the-women-of-the-church
And to those who have no children. You make such wonderful contributions, and the Lord has promised you a fulness of joy, that your righteous desires will be fulfilled, and that no blessing will be witheld from you in the eternities. In this life or the next, you will be given children of your own to raise. This has been said by numerous prophets.
