Life is the most precious gift we are given is correct. But a gift is never granted. Grant has the following meanings : ******************************************************************************* 1. to bestow or confer, especially by a formal act: to grant a charter. 2. to give or accord: to grant permission. 3. to agree or accede to: to grant a request. 4. to admit or concede; accept for the sake of argument: I grant that point. 5. to transfer or convey, especially by deed or writing: to grant property. *******************************************************************************
