Love doesn't need to give reasons --- it is not something you work out on your pocket calculator and love according to the result. And love generally means not demanding reasons, either. Right here in your message you have excellently described how you love him --- that is the answer.
I suspect the answer may lie, NOT in you having any peculiar inability to answer his questions, but in his inability to accept and feel happy with the answers you give him. Does he explain WHY he loves you, any better than you have ?
What you describe in your mother is a tactic, probably learned from her own mother --- sulking. It hurts everyone and never solves anything.
If you want to change the pattern of automatic thoughts and reactions and behaviours which trouble you, see a good CBT therapist and work on this --- it can be achieved.
