Jill Scott is one hell of a lady!
Dani Ruelas Jones-Nash is a woman who ran into Scott as she went in to work at Walgreens. Nash was having a terrible day, and her run-in with Scott completely changed her it around.
After talking with Scott, who learned of her bad day, Scott’s love and understanding for Nash was over the moon as she recorded the heartwarming video (below) with Nash’s phone, giving comforting words like a sister.
Here’s what Nash wrote with the video:
“So, here I am, having the worst day of my life…I put on my smile for the world everyday. I makes me happy to make others happy. But today was bad. And I decided f**k it, face it anyways Dani. Don’t call out and crawl under your rock of depression until you recover like you always do. Go to work with your sad face on and be vulnerable. Don’t hide today and nurse your wounds, don’t wear the happy mask. Make this day better. Your steps are ordered by the Lord.”
“As I’m walking up the stairs, I see a familiar face…she says “hello” and smiles (I was staring at her like I saw a ghost, and I did not have on my winged eyeliner or any lipstick so I was pretty scary )… I was still crying and started telling her about my horrible day… and pouring it out like a faucet (I kept telling her I promise I won’t make a scene) and she was more patient than my therapist, and ain’t nobody as patient as Denise Jones. She listened. I told her that my cousin loves her and I just did her nails because she is going to see her tonight and I don’t wanna take a picture with her cause of the obvious but I want to call my cousin (she didn’t answer )and take a pic for her. She said “no, you are gonna take it with me, as a matter of fact give me your phone, we gonna take a video”: Miss #JillScott
Jilly from Philly is truly down to earth!
