Your mother's cousins are your first cousins once removed (a generation removed).

Your mother's cousins' children are your second cousins,.

Cousins have a set of grandparents in common.

Second cousins have a set of great grandparents in common.

Third cousins have a set of great great grandparents in common, and so on.
