My best friend moved about a year ago,we were extremely close and I helped her through a lot of bad things that were happening in her life, and as a consequence of her moving it means that we do not see each other as much as we would like, we both have children and other things that keep us busy, but when she needs me, then all she has to do is pick the phone up. We may not speak for months on end but if she ever needs me then I am there for her. She can count on it, and she knows it. Last year she found out she was pregnant with her 5th child, a few days later she also found out that her 15 year old daughter was also pregnant, she was there for her daughter, and when the daughter decided to also keep the baby she was there for her then too. My friend gave birth to her son on 31st March and her daughter gave birth just a few hours later on the 1st April, how strange is that??? This morning at 7am I had a text off my friend telling me that her daughters baby had been rushed to hospital seriously ill, I immediately got up and phoned her, the baby had an enlarged liver and her blood is not clotting properly, she may have to have an operation but they are hoping that they can just solve the problem with medicines.If she had not have gone into hospital when she did, she could have bled to death as her body was filling with fluid. I really hope that they can make her better quickly, it is always so much harder to deal with when it is a tiny baby that is ill, and the poor mum is only 16 and she must be going through torture. I have spent most of today mithering about it and just praying that this little baby will be ok, she is only 12 days old. Once again my friend turned to me when she needed me and I am glad that she did because even though we do not see each other as much as I would like, I will always be there for her and she knows it. So do you have any friends that you do not see much of but are always there when you need them? Does anyone come to you when they are troubled because they know that you are a voice of reason and that you will always help them by talking to them and keeping their feet on the ground? Also could you please think positive thoughts for this little baby girl, and send the hope for her to get well, I will let you all know if it works, thank you.xx

I will certainly keep good thoughts and prayer for that precious little baby and the family. Yes I do have good friends that I can count on and will always be there for me. They are also far away. It is so sad when some people don't have any.

God bless the litter baby! I have many friends ever, but no one can do the things like your friend do, when I need help, if we didn't keep in touch with each other, my friends doesn't phoned to me because they do not know what is the situation I am faced. So the problem is mine, I should show my status to all my friends continoursly. If I ask for help with one of my friends, they may give me a hand which depends on whether I have helped him. So, friendship means acceptance and presenting.Isn't right?

My friend can come to me anytime with her problems, she knows this and she always does and she knows that I will listen and then give her advice or support in the best way that I can. I do not think that being able to turn to a friend should depend on whether or not you have helped them before, the whole point of friendship is being there for each other no matter what.

Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way for your friend, daughter and baby. I hope the little one will be ok! I do have a friend who lives in Hawaii, my best friend in fact, whenever she needs me I try to be there for her too. It may not be there in Hawaii, but it's on the phone, email or even chatting online if she needs to talk to me. She also does the same for me, whenever I need to talk with her and she listens and keeps me grounded too.

Hi Gem. I'm so sorry to hear about that little girl. I am definitely sending positive thoughts in her direction and I pray for her to get better without surgery. I do have a couple friends that I can count on. Its definitely a good feeling to know you can count on someone and they can count on you, through thick and thin.

my prayers do go out to your friends grandbaby and hope thelittle one will soon get much better. Its so hard on a young moher to have a baby so periliusly ill. I also have afriend I dont see as often asI would like but she is always there for me and I for her. she came to me when she needed me and I do the same with her.'she helped me thru a financial crisis not by giving me money which I would have refused but by giving me a goodie bag full of the groceries she knew I used she called it her care package and it was given and received with much love.
