Giving Thanks Word Square

Find these things, which are a few of the things we have been blessed with, by reading forward, backward, down, up, and diagonally. Because all the words have at least one letter that is not in any other word, it is important to find the longest words first. Read the unused letters from left to right from the top row to the bottom row to find out what we should be doing every day. What other things are you thankful for?
