There was an old woman who was always bright, cheerful, and optimistic, even though she was confined to her room because of illness. She lived in an attic in the fifth floor of an old building. A friend decided to visit her one day and brought with her a wealthy woman. Since there was no elevator, the two ladies began the long climb upward. When they reached the second floor the wealthy woman commented, "What a dark and filthy place!" Her friend replied, "It's better higher up."

When they arrived at the third floor the remark was made, "Things look even worse here." Again the reply is, "It's better higher up."

The two ladies finally reached the attic where they found the bed-ridden saint of God. A smile on her face radiated the joy that filled her heart. Although the room was clean, the wealthy lady could not get over the stark surroundings in which the old woman lives. She blurted out, "It must be very difficult for you to live here like this."

Without any hesitation the bed-ridden saint responded, "It's better higher up."
