Singing Again

Somewhere along the way I either read or heard a version of the following story...
There once was a young girl who loved to sing almost all the time. Her voice was lovely and her heart was light. The girls mother appreciated the little budding star and loved her very much. One day the mother was having a really tough day. The drive to work was one giant traffic jam. Work was a pain. The drive home wasn't much better than morning. The main course of dinner burned and a game preempted her favorite show. The mother's fuse was SO short by the time she collapsed in her chair, wishing that the day would just end. Meanwhile the young girl sang her songs and danced around her mother's chair. The mother snapped, pushed past her limits by the day, and she hollered at her daughter, "stop that singing, you are hurting my ears and I can't stand it". The daughter immediately quieted and the mother closed her eyes and wished for better days.
