What did you do? Maybe it was your mother's own carelessness, or simply the fact that you know enough about her as a close relative, to guess something she might use as a password or security question.

Meanwhile, there are lots of people who think the security level is too high, and they can't get back in to their own accounts.

I only knew her email. So I clicked on forgot password and simply entered my email as the back up one

Assuming you live together, other factors in your favor would be same IP Address, and maybe you both share the same device or she's previously logged in on yours.

It was easy for you, simply because of the close relationship, Again I'd say there are many people who think Google makes it way too hard.
