I just love to watch your shows along with your Son's you are my inspiration I look up to you for being a single mom and raising two loving young men. I am a single mom with two boys but also have a wonderful little girl that is only 6 and I am 44, she keeps the rest of us going. Its so hard to be a single mom but I always say if Paula can do it so can I. I struggle becouse I am not talented like you but no matter what I hang in there thanks so much for all the single moms out there. Thank you for showing me so many great things to do, and thank your boys also. May you and your family have very BLESSED HOLIDAYS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS.
