Correção de texto "My best friend.."

My best friend is always by my side, when i need him. And when i'm sad he asks why and try to make things better, calling me to go out, talking with me... My dad says that when you are getting older you can count your friends with the fingers of only one hand.When i was a child i thought that he was wrong but then i growed and see that real friends are rare and when you have one you need to be yourself, don't lie, be loyal and truthful.Sometimes i think that friendship is better than marriage,dating or anything of this kind because jealousy and sexual interests aren't present and mine friendship with my best friend is also in joy and in sorrow, in wealth and in poverty.

Fiquei vendo os videos da bbc (vi nas dicas do forúm) e ouvindo alguns podcasts, esse texto fiz "pensando" em inglês = ]

Mind if I make a minor correction?

"... count in..." should have read "... count on..."

I thought you might not mind this minor correction.

You can safely shorten "... make things stay better" to "... make things better".

Well, I should have known better than to offer other people's text a thousand minor corrections.

"... may note other errors..." should have read "... notice other errors..."

This discussion forum (rather successfully) attempts to explain the difference between note and notice.
