    bestow

    I am grateful to what I have been bestowed (upon).

    Is the preposition 'upon' a must? Thank you.

    The whole sentence is a mess.
    Do you mean "I am grateful for what has been bestowed upon me"?
    That is, you're thankful for what you've been given.
    If so, 'upon me' is a prepositional phrase, and must have a preposition.
    "I am grateful for what has been bestowed" is not a good sentence, unless we already know what's been disposed, and upon whom.
