My Consequential Strangers

Have you ever given much thought to those people in your life who you see everyday or on a regular basis who are strangers but also more than strangers? Maybe the barista at Starbucks who has your order memorized? Or the dry cleaner who asks about your kids? Maybe the bus driver who gives you a little extra help now that you have a stroller to carry on? Authors Melinda Blau and Karen L. Fingerman gave them a name: consequential strangers and recently wrote a book titled The Importance of "Consequential Strangers" on the topic.

I'm over at DC Metro Moms today talking about a few of the consequential strangers in my life. I'd love to hear about some of the consequential strangers in your life.
