My life I think revolves around pop-culture. Or at least I evidentally find a lot of truth there. I'm reminded of a line in the "Horse Whisperer" where the mother of a horribly injured, rebellious, angry child begs the air to just tell her she is doing the right thing. There was of course no answer because she asked the air.
Dinah, I think there is evidence that you are doing the right thing by your mother. You say she is happy, her brother is happy and you are relatively happy not intervening any more than you are. There are some things that just can't be forced and doing so doesn't necessarily improve anything for any of the parties involved.
I say let what is, be. You can always re-evaluate later.
